The (needlepoint) basketweave stitch (also known as the basketweave tent stitch) is a form of tent stitch. It passes diagonally over the intersection of the horizontal and vertical threads of a canvas. Each stitch follows the preceding one in a diagonal line. The stitching is reversed at the end of each line. See also basketweave.
