The Vertical Basket Weave Knitting Pattern

This is a pattern that is quite similar to the classic Basket Weave pattern but with slightly longer columns.

Here are the instructions:

 Vertical Basket Weave

Multiple of 6 plus 4.

Use the needles that the yarn calls for.

Repeat from * to *

Note: On rows 7,8,9 and 10, the instructions are written as the repetition is technically written but the look would be alternating rows with 1,2,3,and 4.
