Another Basket Weave Pattern – A4 Size

536751_563255597038584_1740014628_nMy love for the basket weave stitch continues! Many hospitals who provide blankets for micro-preemies request blankets of an A4 size, I’m rubbish with blankets but thought I would at least try to do one, it came out really nice, good shape, size etc. If you find any mistakes in the pattern, please let me know, I wrote this up from memory so hoping it is correct!
