The square rib basket is a six inch square.  The color pattern combines violet dyed cane on the handle and the initial rib insertion weaving, black reed for the handle and God's eye, with cream flat reed filling in the remainder of the basket.

Footed Yarn Basket

This rectangular basket is perfect to hold your yarn and fiber projects.   The stained oak wooden legs raise the basket three inches off the ground. An inner rim row is added after six inches of woven flat reed to allow for the hand openings on two opposite sides.  Two more inches of 1/4" reed raise the sides to eight inches.  The basket is topped with an oak stained rim row.    The overall size of the basket is 13" x 16".
