Basketmakers have endless possiblities when designing a basket. Basket shapes, reed colors and weaving patterns can be mixed and matched to create unique baskets reflecting personal preferences and creative ideas.
This week I started a basket base by weaving four different colors in a star pattern. Once the base was appoximately four inches square I started to pull up the sides. I wove the basket in a cat-head style shape. To produce a swirling effect around the basket I wove the sides with an over two and under three twill pattern .
The basket was finished with a inner and outter rim lashed with cane.
