Class #7 – Large Diagonally Plaited Storage Basket

This beautiful large basket is perfect for sitting on the floor to hold magazines, throws or even kids or dog toys. The basket is woven in a twill pattern with dyed reed making a unique X pattern. The bottom twill is just as pretty as the sides. Students will learn the diagonally plaited techniques to make this a fun basket to weave and be proud of when finished. Students will have their choice of colors. Basket is finished with waxed linen lashing.
