Both, came out gorgeous in my opinion, and the basket weave is the perfect stitch for winter blankets and dish cloths. However, I decided to concentrate on the herringbone stitch; something I only thought possible for knitters. Although it doesn't quite create the traditional pattern that you see in knits and tweed, it does create a rather interesting stitch, and is a good take on the half treble.

As I was in need of a hook case, to store my colourful metal hooks in, I decided this would be the stitch to use. Different from any I've seen in books or magazines, I knew this was the stitch for me. Wanting a bright and moderately thick yarn, I chose Sirdar Supersoft Aran in a turquoise/sea green colour and chose a gorgeous denim blue colour for the inside.
