Basket Size: 15"L x 4 1/4"W x 4 1/4"H
Cut 44 spokes from the 3/8" FF each 8" long and 3 spokes each 4" long. Put aside these 4" spokes for later use - they WILL NOT be inserted into the base. Soak spokes briefly. Put a light pencil mark at 7 1/2" on the wood base. This center mark will indicate the placement of a "sleeve spoke". Insert the 3/8" "sleeve spoke" and 1 spoke on each side of this center spoke. These 3 spokes must be close together with just enough room for weavers. The overall measurement of these 3 spokes will be 1 3/8" (outside to outside). Slip the sleeve onto these 3 spokes and adjust spoke spacing if the sleeve doesn't fit. Remove the sleeve. Insert remaining spokes evenly around the base. I found it very helpful to glue in the spokes.
Weave 2 rows 11/64" FO start and stop, keeping the spokes FLAT. Then gently upset the spokes and weave 2 more rows with 11/64" FO (for a total of 4 rows).
Switch to 3/16" FO and weave 2 rows. Next, insert the three 4" spokes (the ones you had set aside) behind (inside) the original 3 "sleeve spokes". You will now have 3 double spokes. Continue start and stop weaving with 3/16" FO for 11 rows, but weaving ONLY THE 3 INNER SPOKES. The 3 original glued in "sleeve spokes" will NOT be incorporated into the weaving until you get above the sleeve. Slip the sleeve on the front (outside) original 3 spokes and continue weaving. Remember, you will be weaving the 3 inner spokes only. After approximately 11 rows of 3/16" FO you should be at the top of the sleeve. Pack weaving well, especially between the "sleeve spokes". At this point, I cut off my 3 short inside spokes, cutting them flush with the top of the sleeve. DO NOT CUT THE ORIGINAL GLUED IN SPOKES. Weave 3 more rows of 3/16" FO incorporating the 3 original "sleeve spokes". This is a total of 20 rows of weaving (4 of 11/64" FO and 16 of 3/16" FO). Weave 1 row of 3/8" FF (rim row). Again, pack well and make sure your sleeve is pushed down on these spokes. If you plan to put dyed overlays on the front, do it now. Cut and tuck, rim with 1/2" FF (inner) and 1/2" FO (outer), seagrass between rims, and lash with 3/16" FO.
