this is a simplified basket weave stitch pattern and I noticed that the purl stitch from the row below makes the next up knit stitch look like it is wrapped, when it is simply a purl stitch.

You're right!! You got the eye for it!!
I just did a gauge and It's pretty the same at the picture
I'll now try with 2 strands of yarn

Thanks again! ( and I'm still curious about the "wrap" stitch.

I just tried it and I get the same results as Paulaque. I did more rows of k1p1 and used it double stranded because the picture looked like it was on those "wrapped look" stitches which are really the last purl. You may want to do less rows so experiment.

Sample made with Plymouth Encore double stranded with size US 10 needles.

Thanks a lot Jan!

So, if I understand correctly, you did:
row 1 K1 P1
row 2 K1 P1
row 3 P1 K1 (purl the purl sts and knit the knit sts)
row 4 P1 K1
row 5 K1 P1 (knit the knit sts and purl the purl sts)
row 6 K1 P1

Sorry if I don't get it...I'm still pretty new to knitting

with the wrap what I did was the wrap for the short row but I continued to work across. Like this:
P1, k1 wrap entire stitch, p1, k1 wrap entire stitch, etc.

I will attempt to make a video of what I did and put it on youtube so you can see what I mean.

You are not actually doing short rows though, right? I did try a variation of this, but I wasn't sure it looked right. Would love to see how you're doing it and what it looks like.


Yes, that is what I did, Deb. It's like ribbing, but then you make them offset.
