All supplies to make this basket are available at N.C. Basket Works.
10" Leather Straps available in Light Chestnut, Dark Chestnut and Black.


Cut 10 pieces of 1/2"FO each 20" long. These are the corner and center spoke reinforcements. Soak for several minutes. Flex these pieces to straighten them and set aside.

From 5/8"FF cut 36 spokes 25" long. Soak briefly. Put a light pencil mark at 8" on the wood base (which is the center of the base). Insert spoke at this center mark and one on the oppisite side. You will have 13 spokes on each long side of the base and 5 on each short end. I found it extremely helpful to glue in the spokes. Twine 2 times around the base with #3R.

Upset the spokes and weave the following rows start and stop, keeping the spokes straight, as they do want to slant:

9 rows 1/2"FF - the first row must be woven behind the center spoke. After 4 rows insert your 1/2"FO
reinforcements on top of each corner and center spoke.

1 row 1/4"FF dyed

1 row 3/8" braided seagrass (I butted the braided seagrass inside)

1 row 1/4"FF dyed

9 rows 1/2"FF- one end of the leather strap will be woven on the 7th row in this series. On the narrow side of the basket, weave 1/2"FF through the loop. To reinforce the weaver that goes through the loop, cut a piece of 1/2"FF 3" long. Weave this piece through the loop and hide the ends behind a spoke. Then continue with 2 more rows of 1/2"FF for a total of 9 rows.

1 row 1/4"FF dyed

1 row 3/8" braided seagrass

1 row 1/4"FF dyed

9 rows 1/2"FF

1 row 1/4"FF dyed

1 row 3/8" braided seagrass

1 row 1/4"FF dyed

8 rows 1/2"FF- the other end of the leather strap is woven on the 3rd row in this series. Repeat the same reinforcement procedure as above. Continue for 5 more rows for a total of 8 rows. Cut the 1/2"FO reinforcements near the top of the basket.

1 row 3/8"FF rim row

Pack well. Cut and tuck spokes. Rim with 1/2"FO, seagrass between the rims, and double lash with 3/16"Fo.

Stain with your favorite shade of Weaver's Stain.
