Definitely a step above plain hearth baskets with bare handles woven only with flat reed.
This set of ribbed hearth baskets feature three new handles of Anne's design. The baskets are woven with cane, flat oval, flat and round reed, ribs are pre-shaped before weaving.
The braided handles are woven first with a teardrop shaped god's eye and the initial weaving is done with cane.
The weaving decrease is done on the "corners" of the basket so they look nice and neat.
A classic basket for all time!
This detailed pattern gives directions for all 3 sizes of frames - try a nesting set with different handle designs.
This pattern is for advanced weavers with a great deal of knowledge on how to weave ribbed baskets. This is not a beginner basket.
