Materials
3" Round Wood Base w/ slit

3/8" Flat Flat - spokes
3/8" Flat Oval - rims
#1 Round - twining
Seagrass - rim filler
11/64" Flat Oval - weavers & lashing
Maxi Cure Glue - optional

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



Cut 16 spokes from 3/8" FF each 6" long. Soak briefly. Insert the spokes evenly around the base (gluing the spokes into the slit is optional.) Twine with #1R twice around the base keeping the spokes flat. Do Not Cut The Round Reed. Gently upset the spokes and twine two more times around, encouraging the spokes to go upward. (This will be a total of 4 time around of twining. Also remember that your top diameter shold be 4".)

Weave 14 rows of start and stop using 11/64" FO. Then weave 1 row 1/4" FF green and 1 row 1/4" FF red, and 1 row 1/4 FF natural (rim row).

Pack well. Choose your handle spokes - these will be spokes which are opposite each other and will be cut off flush. Position your eyelets here. Cut and tuck all remaining spokes, bending over the extended wire on both sides of the eyelet. Rim with 3/8" FO, seagrass between rims, and lash with 11/64" FO. Attach the wire handle.
