One-Three Basketweave Stitch Pattern

I had a few requests for the details on the basketweave stitch pattern, so here it is.

There are many variations on the basketweave stitch pattern theme, so I'm going to call this one the One-Three Basketweave Stitch Pattern.

The base is a p1, k1, p1, k3 ribbing. This results in a nice snug sock cuff and a good fit.

A pair of finished socks knit in this stitch pattern can be seen here.

I know that I've said this before, I love the way you match the perfect yarn to the perfect pattern. The socks in the previous post are so very cozy looking, I think I'll knit some socks as soon as I finish my first sweater (boy I hope it fits). I'll need it for while waiting for the train. Warm socks will probably be necessary too.

That's a really pretty stitch pattern. Have you ever used it on a scarf?
