Hen Basket

The Hen Basket gets its name from its original function.  Farmers used to take their hens to market in this style of basket. Not many people have such a need anymore, but the basket continues to be a favorite style for basket makers to weave.

The basket symmetrical style makes for an attractive holder of yarn or dyed flowers.  I used variegated shades of violet for the Hen Basket below.
