Reverse Basketweave Stitch

The Reverse Basketweave Needlepoint Stitch is a variation of the traditional Basketweave Stitch. It's often employed when the regular Basketweave might cause distortion or uneven tension in certain areas of the canvas.

Stitch Details

Reverse Basketweave Stitch Instructions & Diagram

You can see the diagram of this stitch below. 

  • Insert the needle from the back of the canvas to the front.
  • Move vertically upwards, skipping an intersection of the canvas, and insert the needle from front to back.
  • Move horizontally to the left by skipping a row below the canvas and down one row, pass the needle through that intersection.
  • Make a horizontal stitch to the right by skipping a hole in the canvas. This will make the two stitches into a horizontal T-shape.
  • Repeat the pattern across the canvas until the entire area is filled.
