|Basket designed and pattern written by Suzanne Moore
|1/2" Flat Flat - spokes
10" Carolina Square Handle
7mm Flat Flat - weavers
3/8" Flat Flat - filler spokes & 1 row weaving
11/64" Flat Oval - lashing
#5 Round or Seagrass - rim filler
1/2" Flat Oval - rims
|Cut 5 spokes from 1/2" FF each 27" long and 9 spokes each 22" long. Also cut 4 filler spokes from 3/8" FF each 13" long. Layout the 5 long spokes horizontally, alternating with the 4 filler spokes. Weave in 1 center spoke vertically starting over the center spoke and under the filler spokes. Weave in 4 more spokes on each side of this center spoke. Adjust base measurement approximately 9" x 4". Upset the spokes.
Weaving the Basket:
(You will not weave in the filler spokes yet - leave them sticking out straight until 4 rows are woven).
Weave 1 row 3/8" FF, then 18 rows 7mm FF. After 4 rows you can tuck in the filler spokes into the weaving (refer to photo).
|Measure often - your handle is 10" wide.
Pack well. Cut and tuck spokes. Insert the handle and rim with 1/2" FO, #5R or seagrass as rim filler, and lash with 11/64" FO. Spray your basket with Weaver's Stain before attaching the Zinnia buckle with raffia.
All materials (except the raffia) to make this basket are available at NC Basket Works.
