Heart basket

A heart basket starts as a flat reed woven pattern mocking a heart shape.  As the sides are turned up the curved humps of the heart are formed with each row added.

Any color reed can be used to weave a heart basket, but I often use red reed for the base.  Red  helps to emphasize the heart shape and creates an alternating pattern with the natural reed used for the side weavers.
