The basket filling stitch (also known as the basket satin stitch) is a form of filling stitch, in which three to five satin stitches are worked in alternating horizontal and vertical blocks to produce a basket weave pattern. The basket filling stitch is generally used for counted thread work. It is not the same as a basket stitch or a basket weave stitch.
