Jr. Snowman Basket Button® (Snowman Button No Longer Available)
Greenery shaped to resemble a tree (optional)
Cut 14 spokes from 3/8" FF each 8" long. Dampen slightly. Insert the spokes evenly around base ( gluing the spokes into the base is optional). Twine 2 times around the base with #1 R. DO NOT CUT THE ROUND REED. Upset the spokes and continue to twine 5 more times around the basket. End round reed.
Weave the following rows start and stop:
10 rows 11/64" FO
1 row 1/4" FF - the Jr. Snowman Basket Button® will be woven on this row along
with an overlay piece of 1/4" FF dyed black for his belt.
14 rows 11/64" FO
1 row 1/4" FF - rim row
Pack well. Cut and tuck spokes. Rim with 3/8" FF inside and outside, seagrass between rims and lash with 11/64" FO.
Stain basket if desired. I used Oak Weaver's Stain and covered the Basket Buckle® with plastic wrap. Insert tree and arms on the Jr. Snowman and fill with candy canes.
To make the Pencil Basket: Follow directions for the Candy Cane Basket. Eliminate the 1/4"FF row in the middle of the basket. The cardinal basket button® (Cardinal Button Is No Longer Available) is tied on after the basket is stained. The height of the pencil basket is 5".
