The basketweave has always been one of my favorite patterns. Usually I work it the traditional
way with knits and purls. But I was playing around with patterns that use floats as part
of the design, and came up with this terrific variation on the theme. This version of basketweave
is not only rather elegant, it is astonishingly easy, especially worked in the round.
