Very easy and fast pattern, there is a youtube video that shows how to do the stitches. Beautiful when made with multi-colored yarn.

Looking for Basketweave Diamond Throw and Pillow # LW2919 shown on back of my Crochet World, Aug edition

Haven't received a reply from you . . . where can I find the free Basketweave Diamond Throw and Pillow Pattern # LW2919 shown on back page of my Crochet World Aug. Ed. 2012

When I tried this pattern all the Front posts were all in a row going up and so were the backposts. What am I doing wrong

when you turn your work, check which way you did the previous row, & start the new row with the opposite stitch- if the row before is front post crochet, then the first stitches will be back post to start- if they are every other one and just switched on the next row, it should be showing the basket weave.

back loop and front loop not post I hope this helps you
