FREE BASKET WEAVING PATTERN

Weaving Level: Beginner  

Designed by: Jennifer Rhodes

Finished Dimensions:  6" diameter x 6" high

 

This basket is made mostly with scraps from the scrap bin, hence the name.  This is a great way to use up small dyed scraps and 3/8” flat scraps.  Use whatever colors you have. You can vary the weaving with dyed 11/64 if you prefer.  Change the look with a different handle.  Weaves up quickly and is fun to do.

The Scrap Bucket

 

Material List

4” slotted round base
¼” flat or flat oval dyed (spokes)
½” flat dyed (rim)
3/8” flat (spokes and false rim)                            
11/64” flat or flat oval (weavers and lashing)
#2 round reed natural (weave and chase)
Seagrass
Wire bean pot handle 5x4

 

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

 

STEP 1

z Cut 8 spokes 10” from 3/8 flat reed.
z
Cut 16 spokes 10” from ¼ Flat or flat oval.
z
Find bad side of reed and mark end of stake.
z Insert 3/8 flat spokes, bad side up splitting up the base into quarters.  Insert remaining 3/8 spokes in the middle of each quarter.  
Insert two ¼ spokes in between each 3/8” spoke.
z
Weave and chase three rows.

 

STEP 2

z Split one of the 3/8 stakes down the middle until you reach the weave and chasing.
z Taper a long piece of 11/64 flat or flat oval and insert it between the split 3/8 spoke and begin 
weaving over/under gently bringing up the sides.  You will be weaving continuously around the 
basket.  Weave about 34 rows.  Tapering the end of the last weaver and ending in the same place 
where you began.
z Weave one row of start/stop weaving with 3/8” flat reed as your false rim row.

 

STEP 3

z Cut your inside spokes and tuck the outside spokes under two rows of weaving.
z Insert your “ears” for the wire handle.
z Rim with ½ flat dyed reed.  (I used scraps for these pieces also so the inside and outside pieces are two different colors.)
z Insert seagrass and lash with 11/64 flat oval reed.
z Slip wire handle through “ears”.
