It’s time to Break Out the Basketweave Hat this season. Winter is when we usually have more of a break in our lives, or we just choose to take the most vacation. Because of this, you should take this time to work up your next crochet pattern. We suggest this crochet beanie pattern, complete with the basketweave stitch, so that your next winter wearable has a nifty look and feel. It’s a great way to learn a new crochet stitch and create something totally useful for the winter season.
