Materials
5/8" Flat Flat - Spokes
7mm Flat Flat - filler spokes - natural
7mm Flat Flat - dyed & natural - weavers
#2 Round - twining
11/64" Flat Oval - lashing
1/2" Flat Flat - inner "false" rim
1/2" Flat Flat - dyed - weavers
1/2" Flat Oval - Rims
Seagrass - rim filler
2 Wrought Iron Handles


Base Size: 8" x 8" Square; Height: 10 3/4"; Top Diameter: 9 3/4"

Cut 18 spokes each 35" long using 5/8" FF and 8 filler spokes each 14" using 7mm FF. Mark the centers of several spokes and filler spokes on the wrong side. Lay out 9 spokes horizontally alternately with 8 filler spokes. Line up center marks. Weave in 1 center spoke vertically starting under the horizontal spoke and weaving over the filler spokes. Weave in 4 more spokes on each side of this center spokes. Adjust base to 8" x 8" square. Fold the filler spokes to the inside of the base. Create "chicken feet" by cutting these filler spoke ends in half lengthwise.



 
Tuck these under the 2nd row of base weaving (5/8" spoke) on each side of the filler spoke. Trim off any excess. Repeat on the other end. Twine one time around base with #2 R. Upset the spokes and weave the following rows of start and stop:

(keep the spokes going straight up and an equal distance between each spoke)

2 rows 7mm FF dyed
1 row 1/2" FF - dyed
2 rows 7mm FF - dyed
11 rows 7mm FF - natural
2 rows 7mm FF - dyed
1 row 1/2" FF - dyed
2 rows 7mm FF - dyed
4 rows 7mm FF - natural

At this point my basket measured approximately 11" in diameter. Pack well before putting on the "false" rim". DO NOT CUT SPOKES. Use 1/2" FO for the outside rim and 1/2" FF for the inside rim. Position the wrought iron handles on the center 3 spokes on opposite sides of the basket. The wrought iron handles will sit just above the rim. Double lash tightly with 11/64" FO. (It is important to lash tightly so the handles will stay more in an upright position and not flop downward onto the basket.)

As you weave the next 8 rows of 7mm FF, push the spokes inward slightly, keeping an equal distance between your spokes. Pack well. Cut and tuck spokes. Rim with 1/2" FO (inside and out), seagrass between rims and double lash with 11/64" FO.
