Basket Size: 9 1/2"L x 8"D x 9"T
(display items not included)



 

Basket designed and pattern written by Suzanne Moore

Materials
5" x 8" Rectangle Base
5/8" Flat Flat - spokes
#2 Round - twining
3/8" Flat Flat - weavers
11/64" Flat Oval - lashing


Beaded Snowflake Kit (2 per kit - unassembled)
1 - 10" Plain Leather Strap
1/2" Flat Oval - rims
#2 Seagrass - rim filler
1/4" Flat Flat - dyed red & green - weavers



Cut 24 spokes each 13" long from 5/8" FF. Put a light pencil mark at the center of the base (4") and insert a spoke at this mark and one on the other side of the base. If the groove in your base is too narrow to insert the spoke, run sandpaper around the groove several times, and/or sand down the end of each spoke (you want a tight fit). Then insert 3 spokes on each side of the center spoke - total of 7 on each long side, and 5 on each short side.

Twine with #2R two times around, keeping the spokes flat. End off the round reed. Upset the spokes and weave the following rows:

2 - 3/8" FF
1 - 1/4" FF red
1 - 1/4" FF green
16 - 3/8" FF
1 - 1/4" FF green
1 - 1/4" FF red
2 - 3/8" FF

Pack well. Cut and tuck spokes. Thread the outside 1/2" FO rim through the opening of the leather strap, positioning the strap in the back of the basket. The inner rim goes on in the usual manner with seagrass between the rims and lash with 11/64" FO.

Stain your basket - I used Clear Weaver's Stain. Make the Beaded Snowflakes and attach them with the cotton cord included in the snowflake kit. Fill the basket with greenery and red berries, or decorate as desired.


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