Materials
6" x 14" D handle
#1R twining
11/64" Flat Oval - lashing
1/4" Flat Flat - dyed red & violet weavers
3/8" Flat Flat - weavers
Yarn or ribbon for attaching buckle
1/2" Flat Flat - filler spokes
5/8" Flat Flat - spokes
1/2" Flat Oval - rims
Seagrass - rim filler
Red Hat Basket Buckle ®
Fabric for Liner - optional

Base Size: 13"l x 6"w x 7"h

Cut 5 spokes from 5/8" FF each 32" long and 12 spokes from 5/8" FF each 25" long. Also, cut 4 filler spokes from 1/2" FF each 18" long. Soak briefly. Mark the center of the handle and a few spokes.

Lay the 5 spokes horizontally on top of the handle and alternate with the filler spokes (these will be under the handle.) Weave in vertically 6 spokes on each side of the handle. Adjust the base to 6"w x 13"l. Fold the filler spokes to the inside of the base. Create "chicken feet" by cutting the 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 #1 Round.

Upset the spoke, and weave the following rows of start and stop:

2 rows 3/8" FF
2 rows 1/4" FF - dyed cherry
1 row 1/4" FF - dyed violet
2 rows 1/4" FF - dyed cherry
7 rows 3/8" FF
2 rows 1/4" FF - dyed cherry
1 row 1/4" FF - dyed violet
2 rows 1/4" FF - dyed cherry
2 rows 3/8" FF (last row is the rim row)

Pack well. Cut and tuck spokes in the usual manner. Rim with 1/2" FO, seagrass between rims and double lash with 11/64" FO.

If you plan to stain your basket, do it now before attaching the Red Hat Basket Buckle ®. If you choose to make a liner, many choices of fabric are available at your local Wal-Mart or fabric shop. To attach the Red Hat Buckle ®, I braided 3 strands of yarn - 2 red strands and 1 violet strand.


Handle and Red Hat Basket Buckle ® are available at NC Basket Works.
