Top Basket Size: 14"Long x 11"Deep x 11"Tall
(display items not included)



 

Materials
14" Round O/N Ash Handle
5/8" Flat Flat - spokes
7mm Flat Flat - rim row & lashing
#2 Round - twining


3/8" Flat Flat - filler spokes & weavers
1/2" Flat Oval - rims & reinforcements
Seagrass - rim filler
Beaded Wreath Pkg. - unassembled



From 5/8" FF cut 7 spokes 43" long and 11 spokes 37" long. From 3/8" FF cut 6 filler spokes 22" long. Soak briefly.

Mark the center of several spokes & filler spokes on the wrong side. Layout 7 spokes (43") horizontally alternating with the 6 filler spokes. Line up the center marks. Weave in 1 center spoke vertically starting over the center spoke and weaving under the filler spokes. Weave in 5 more spokes on each side of the center spoke. Adjust base to 12 3/4" x 7". Fold the filler spokes to inside of the base and tuck under the 3rd spoke of base weaving. Trim off any excess. Twine 2 times around the base with #2 R. Upset the spokes.

Weave 25 rows start and stop with the 3/8" FF. Keep the spokes up straight and don't let the corner spokes slant. The length of the basket at the top should be 14" to accommodate the handle (measure often). Weave 1 row 7mm FF (rim row).

Pack well. Cut and tuck spokes. Insert the handle, rim with 1/2" FO, seagrass between rims, and lash with 7mm FF.

Cut 3 pieces of 1/2" FO each approximately 7" long for reinforcements on the bottom of the basket. Wet the pieces to straighten, and taper both ends. Refer to photo for placement.

If you plan to stain your basket, do so before attaching the wreath. I used Clear Weaver's Stain.
