Check the diagram against the layout of your basket

NOW YOU ARE READY TO WEAVE:
Weave 4 rows of weave and chase with #2 R, keeping spokes flat. It is important your first row of 3/16" FO natural is over your "Key" spokes C and F. This will allow the 3/4" FF dyed to go over your end spokes C and F. Do not upset your spokes, rather let them come up with the curve of the basket. You might prefer to weave this basket with the basket on its side to have some pressure on it; to come up with the uprights.

You will weave 6 rows of 3/16" FO natural.

2 rows 3/16" FO dyed.

1 row 3/4" FF dyed.

2 rows 3/16" FO dyed.

2 rows 3/16" FO natural.

1 row 7mm FF rim row.

Pack your weaving, even up your basket, your rim should finish below the angle of the uprights, so when you view the finished basket you can see the angle of the uprights. Cut and tuck. You will rim with 1/2" FO inside and outside, using seagrass for filler. Lash with 3/16" FO.

NOTE: Both rims should overlap about 4" keeping the overlap between the wooden uprights. Do not end your overlap in front of the wooden uprights.

See directions for handle assembly: steps 6 and step 7 for tacking rim to the wooden uprights.

All materials to make this basket are available at NC Basket Works.
