Here is a basket-weave blanket that I have been working on for awhile. I used TLC Amore which is now unfortunately discontinued now.
There are 15 colors with 12 rows of each color. I used a J/10 hook
Here It is almost complete
The final size is 68hx53w inches. Which was almost big enough to cover a queen sized bed
The colors are from the top left going clock-wise - Lake Blue, Plum, Wheat, Light Thyme, Hot Pink, Rose, Sea Glass, Vanilla, Celery, Raspberry, Red Velvet, Dark Thyme, Sand, Grape, and Navy

The pattern is simple. The original pattern stop at 8 row repeat, but I did 12 because each skein of yarn did twelve rows before running out.
Foundation Row: Chain 200. Begin in 3rd ch from hook and work 1 dc in each ch.
Row 1, 3, 6, 8, 10, 12: Chain 3 (counts as a dc), skip first st, *FPdc around post of each next 4 sts, BPdc around post of next 4 st, rep from * across. 1 dc in top of turning chain.
Row 2, 4, 5, 7, 9, 11: Chain 3 (counts as a dc), skip first st, *BPdc around post of each next 4 st, FPdc around post of next 4 st, Rep from * across. 1 dc in top of turning chain.
Repeat rows until you have the desired length and add a border if you wish
