How to crochet the basket pattern in DROPS 163-16

In this DROPS video we show how to crochet the basket weave pattern used for the Spring Baskets in DROPS 163-16.

In the video we start with a chain row of 26 sts, turn and work 1 tr in 4th chain from hook, and then 1 tr in each ch = 24 tr (dividable by 4).
2nd row: ch 1, crochet *1 tr in front post around each of the next 4 tr, 1 tr in back post around each of the next 4 tr *, repeat *-*.
3rd row: ch 1, work *4 tr in front post, 4 tr in back post*, repeat *-*.
4th row: ch 1, work * 1 tr in back post around each of the next 4 tr, 1 tr in front post around each of the next 4 tr *, repeat *-*.
5th row: ch 1, work *4 tr in back post, 4 tr in front post*, repeat *-*.
Repeat row 2-5 for basket weave pattern.

These baskets are made in DROPS Eskimo, in the video we crochet with the same yarn.

Is it possible to have a written pattern for the basket weave beane hat?

Dear Mrs Nijhawan, we have registered your request, thank you. You can also make a swatch and adapt an existing pattern for a hat to your gauge. Happy crocheting!

In the video a DC is being used instead of a TR in the written pattern. Does it matter?

DROPS Design 15.10.2014 - 13:44:

Dear Nathan, crochet terminology is not the same in UK-English and US-English, please click here to check conversion. Happy crocheting!

DROPS Design 15.10.2014 - 13:43:

Dear Michelle, sure it can be done, let the unworked thread follow the work on the WS while crocheting with the other thread. Happy crocheting!
