How To Crochet A Basket Weave Scarf

This free crochet patten gives easy instructions on how to crochet a basket weave scarf.  Basic crochet stitches are used to assemble this beautiful crochet basket weave scarf.  Your double crochet stitch is simply done by inserting your crochet hook either in the front of the post (FPdc) or the back of the post (BPdc) instead of the top of the stitch. This wonderful stitch they call basket weave crochet is one of my favorite.   Done either in the finest cotton crochet thread to the bulky yarns,  the finished pattern is a true work of art.  Check out the video on how simple it truly is.
