Basketweave Throw Pillow- free crochet pattern

Updated: Jul 15

This pattern includes the crocheted front of the pillow ONLY. The pillow can be completed by fitting a fabric backing onto the crochet front and stuffing before fastening the last opening.

The Basketweave is a beautiful stitch that looks much more complicated than it actually is. If you have worked with raised (front- post, back-post double crochet) stitches, this pattern will be a breeze.
