FREE BASKET WEAVING PATTERN

Weaving Level: Beginner  

Designed by: Jennifer Rhodes

Finished Dimensions:  4 1/2" diameter x 9" high

 

This is a fun take on the wine tote designs. It is a very natural looking basket that makes a great gift. 

The Continually Seagrass Wine Tote

 

Material List

#2 round reed (base twining
3/8” flat (stakes and rim row)
1/2” flat oval (rim)
3/16” flat oval (weavers and lashing)
#00 or #0 seagrass (weavers)
3” round base
15” leather handle
 

Soak materials before using;
soak dyed materials separately
DO NOT soak seagrass

 

STEP 1
Cut 16 stakes 12” from 3/8” flat reed. 

        ·         Find bad side of reed and mark the bad side on the end of stake.
·    Insert 16 stakes into the groove of the base – the first four breaking up the base in quarters and then   
        three stakes in between each quarter.
·   Weave and chase two rows tightly around the base with #2 Round reed.  Upset stakes.

STEP 2

Weave the following:

  • Taper a piece of 3/16FO for five or six inches.  Begin by insert the 3/16 behind a stake and weave over/under until you get back to where you began.
  • Next take the #0 seagrass and beginning one stake over to the right of where you started the 3/16 weaver, weave over/under until you arrive back where you stopped with the 3/16FO.  Pick up the 3/16FO and continue weaving and chasing in this manner for a total of 58 rows.  As you weave you might want to use a wine bottle as a guide.  This basket should go up pretty straight and not flare too much.  Watch your spacing between the stakes.
  • End your weavers in the same location you began them on the bottom.  Taper the 3/16FO the same 5 or 6 inches.
  • Weave one row of 3/8 flat reed – this is your rim row.

STEP 3

  • Cut your insides spokes flush with the top row of weaving and tuck the outside spokes under a couple of rows of weaving on the inside.
    Rim with ½ flat oval.  Slip your leather handle onto the outside rim piece and line up on two stakes across from each other.
  • Insert seagrass and lash with 3/16 flat oval or flat reed.  When you “x” lash your handle make the “x” go through your handle instead of over the leather.  It makes for a cleaner look.

 

Stain, finish and sign as desired.
