All supplies to make this basket are available at N.C. Basket Works.
30" Leather Straps available in Light Chestnut, Dark Chestnut and Black.


Cut 8 corner reinforcement pieces from 1/2" FO each 12" long. Soak for several minutes. Flex these pieces to straighten them and set aside.

From 5/8"FF cut 36 spokes 17" Long. Soak briefly. Put a light pencil mark at 8" on the wood base (which is the center). Insert a spoke at this center mark and one on the opposite side. You will have 13 spokes on each long side and 5 on each short end. I found it extremely helpful to glue in the spokes. Twine 2 times around the base with #3R.

Upset the spokes and weave the following rows start and stop, keeping the spokes up straight, as they do want to slant:

7 rows 1/2"FF (first row is woven behind the center spoke).
After 4 rows insert your 1/2" FO reinforcements on top of each corner spoke
1 row 1/4"FF dyed
1 row 3/8" braided seagrass (I butted the braided seagrass inside)
1 row 1/4"FF dyed
7 rows 1/2"FF
1 row 1/4"FF dyed
1 row 3/8" braided seagrass
1 row 1/4"FF dyed
7 rows 1/2"FF (cut the 1/2"FO reinforcements near the top of the basket)

Pack well before putting on the leather straps. The straps will be woven on the 3/8"FF rim row. Attach the straps by counting over 4 spokes from the center spoke. Slip the 3/8" FF through the loop on the ends of the straps. You will have 7 spokes in between the "handle spokes". These "handle spokes" must be spokes that the weaver will go Over - if not, weave on more row. Pack well, then cut and tuck. Use 1/2"FO for the outside rim (thread it through the loop) and also for the inner rim, seagrass between the rims, and lash with 3/16"FO.

Stain with your favorite shade of Weaver's Stain.
