FREE Pattern! Basket Case Potholder (Crochet)

Basketweave is an easy, classic stitch that delivers a lot of texture for minimal effort.  It’s perfect for making dense, heavy fabrics, such as potholders, rugs, and coasters.  However, patterns that use basketweave are almost always worked in rows. When worked in the round, basketweave is usually worked as a tube, without any increasing or decreasing. This potholder pattern starts in the center and increases outward. It increases 16 stitches per increase round, with 4 stitches added at each increase point.

These Basket Case Potholders are so unique. I don't think I've ever seen the basketweave stitch crocheted increased and crocheted in rounds before. I can't wait to try it myself!
