Cut 26 spokes from 1/2" FF each 10" long. Put a pencil mark at the center of the base (5"). This will be your front center spoke where your bow will be tied when the basket is completed. The front of your base is the rounded side and back is the flat. If the groove in your base is too narrow to insert the spokes, run sandpaper around the groove several times, and/or sand down the ends of each spoke (you want a tight fit). Insert a spoke at your center mark, 4 spokes on each side of the center spoke, 4 spokes on each rounded end, and 9 spokes evenly spaced on the flat side. Because you will be upsetting the spoke immediately, you must glue in the spokes.

Weave 22 rows of 3/16" FO start and stop. I inserted the 4 mini basket feet after 2 rows of weaving (2 in front and 2 in back). The last 2 rows of weaving will be 3/8" FF. Pack well, cut and tuck the spokes. Rim with 1/2" FO outside, 1/2" FF inside, seagrass between, and lash with 3/16" FO. I sprayed my basket with Clear Weaver's Stain before tying on the bow. I filled my basket with greenery and berries for that Old Fashioned Christmas Spirit. Or, it is great for holding Christmas Cards.

All materials to make this basket (except greenery and ribbon) are available at NC Basket Works.
