Knitted Unisex Scarf And Hat With Basket Weave Pattern

There’s a big trend for unisex garments in fashion now. We like the look of clothing and accessories that can be easily worn by anyone and everyone. Especially when it comes to knit accessories like scarves, gloves, and hats.

There are plenty of patterns that are suitable for both men, women et all. The Basket Weave Knitting Pattern is one of them, as it is a simple texture with a geometric motif.

We noticed that our unisex video tutorials are very popular: the unisex cowl (with simple cables) and the unisex gloves (with a similar pattern) are among our top tutorials for knitters who want a gender-neutral look.

So Joanne took on the task of designing two new projects that can become a set: The Unisex Basket Weave Scarf, which is an infinity scarf or cowl, and the Unisex Beanie Hat, which will be published next week on our YouTube channel.

The Unisex Beanie is knitted in the round with the same pattern. This is a great way to learn about circular or round knitting and how to join the last stitch at the end so it looks seamless.
