I found a pattern for  Market Bag on knitting daily by Vickie Square but can't find directions to the stitches.  I even own her book and still can't find it..any hints?

Hello Jemmabk:

I am trying the same pattern and search with out finding the same basketweave stitch.  After sleeping on the idea, I realized that the instructions were confusing me.  This is what I did.  INstead of taking the right-hand needle and putting it IN THE STITCH on the left needle, I just passed the first stitch and put the right-hand needle in the back of the second stitch and knitted it.  This left the original loop on the left-hand needle.  Then I knitted in the front of the first stitch and dropped the loop not only from the first stitch, but also the second.  IT WORKED!
