basketweave sweater

This basketweave sweater pattern makes a 20″ wide and 36″ long sleeveless sweater, but it is easy to scale it up or down if you need a different size.  If you can front and back post crochet you can make this stylish sweater, which is just 3 rectangles.

I used Loops and Threads Barcelona yarn, which I have fallen in love with.  They have some great color combinations.

What You Need

  • 5 balls Loops and Threads Barcelona
  • 6mm crochet hook
  • darning needle

Stitches Used

  • ch – chain
  • dc – double crochet
  • fpdc – front post double crochet
  • bpdc – back post double crochet
