| Cut 23 spokes from 7mm FO each 13" long. Evenly space all spokes around the base. If the groove in your base is too narrow to insert the spokes, run sandpaper around the groove several times and/or sand down the ends of each spoke (you want a tight fit). Having an odd number of spokes allows for continuous weave.
Twine with #2R three times around, keeping the spokes flat. End off the round reed. Gently upset the spokes. Taper a long strand of 3/16" FO and continuous weave for 4 rows, ending your weaver inside the basket. Start the 4mm Chocolate Double Twisted Paper Cord where you left off with the 3/16" FO. There is no need to wet it (I just laid the end of the paper cord on top of the 3/16" FO inside the basket). Continuous weave for approximately 29 rows. If you need to add onto the paper cord, just butt it inside the basket and continue. Pack well as you weave. Start again with 3/16" FO and continuous weave for 4 rows. Taper the weaver to end. Twine with #2R two times around.
Pack again. Cut and tuck the spokes (I tucked all my spokes), rim with 1/2" FO outside and 1/2" FF inside, 4mm double twisted paper cord as the rim filler, and lash with 3/16" FO.
