Basket Size: 11"L x 8 1/2"W x 5 1/4"H
Cut 29 spokes from 1/2" FF each 9" long. Cut 3 "sleeve spokes" from 3/8" FF each 9" long, and 3 more spokes from 3/8" FF each 4" long. Put aside these 4" spokes for later use- they will not be inserted into the base. Soak the spokes briefly. Put a light pencil mark in the center of the wood base. This center mark will indicate the placement of a "sleeve spoke". Insert one 3/8" FF "sleeve spoke" in the center and then 1 "sleeve spoke" on each side of this center spoke. The 3 spokes must be close together with just enough room for weavers. The overall measurement of these 3 spokes will be 1 1/2"(outside to outside). Slip the sleeve onto these 3 spokes and adjust spacing if the sleeve doesn't fit. Remove the sleeve. Insert the 1/2" FF spokes evenly around the base. I found it very helpful to glue in the spokes.
Weave 2 rows of 11/64" FO start and stop, keeping the spokes FLAT. Then, gently upset the spokes and weave 3 more rows with 11/64" FO (total of 5 rows of 11/64" FO). Next, weave 1 row 7mm FF, 1 row 1/4" FF green, 1 row 7mm FF. Now insert the three 4" spokes (the ones you had set aside) behind (inside) the original 3 "sleeve spokes". You will now have 3 double spokes. Continue start and stop weaving with 7mm FF, but WEAVING ONLY THE 3 INNER SPOKES. The 3 original glued in "sleeve spokes" will NOT be incorporated into the weaving until you get above the sleeve. Slip the sleeve onto the front (outside) original 3 glued spokes, and continue weaving. Remember, you will be weaving the 3 inner spokes only. After approximately 9-10 rows of 7mm FF you should be at the top of the sleeve. Pack well, especially between the "sleeve spokes". At this point, I cut off my 3 short inside spokes, cutting them flush with the top of the sleeve. DO NOT CUT THE ORIGINAL GLUED IN SPOKES. Weave 1 row 7mm FF, 1 row 1/4" FF dyed green, and 2 rows 7mm FF (this weaving sequence is woven with your original glued in spokes). Insert 1/4" dyed walnut overlays on each side of the sleeve. Refer to photo. Again, pack well, and make sure your sleeve is pushed down on the spokes. Cut and tuck spokes. Rim with 1/2" FF (inner) and 1/2" FO (outer), seagrass between rims, and lash with 11/64" FO.
