basketweave stitch

Watch your gauge when working the center section, basketweave stitch. I should have gone up a hook size, as the pattern is a tighter weave, and pulls the afghan in. I didn't catch it in time, and now I'm going to have to take it apart. The basketweave stitch was one of the designers own, and the beginning of each row was hard to remember. I was able to find the designers Youtube directions as to how to make the stitch.

Holiday Cables

Making this afghan now for my daughter. I'm using the color Grape Jam in the Redheart with Love yarn. Nice pattern, enough pattern variations to make it interesting, but not too difficult. The yarn is nice and soft, but hard to find in stores. Going to have to order it.
