basket weaving with newspaper.looks like fun, except I have more boxes of basket weaving supplies than old newspapers! Wouldn't make sense to buy the Sunday NY Times just to make a basket,,,or would it?
Basketweave is a popular stitch pattern that relies on double crochet front and back post stitches. It requires a multiple of 6 stitches, plus 4 more stitches. For a washcloth-sized swatch, start with 42 stitches.
