Weaving Base: Mark center of all spokes and handle spokes on rough side. Soak for 5 minutes.
ROW 2: Weaving over 2 and under 2, split the two spokes. You will now be weaving with single spokes all the way around the basket.
ROW 3:Weave 3 rows. Start forming the cat head feet by placing the corners between your thumb and forefinger with your thumb in the center side of base by pressing up with thumb and pulling down with fingers.
ROW 4 - 24: Same as row 3.
Check shape of basket
several times by looking at the picture. On 5th row, circumference should be 22". Now start loosening up center of basket to 26" circumference.
The 24th row should be about 24" around.
To Form Handle: Pull handle spokes back together,
measuring 12" across for arch and insert into weaving on opposite side. Repeat on other side, inserting on the outside (top) of handle into weaving. Take the 2 handle supports (15") 3/8" flat oval and shave 1-1/2" on either side. Insert ends of one piece on outside (top) of handle into each side of the weaving.
Handle Trim/Wrapping: 3/16" flat oval - Insert one end on top of 3/8" flat oval in the center and
tuck into weaving. Wrap solid for 2". Lift the top 3/8 FO piece and wrap under twice and over twice. Repeat pattern until you reach the other side, then wrap solid for 2".
Cut and tuck ends and spokes.
Rim: Clamp rim pieces in place and lash with Medium Cane.
