Class #11 – Sciob

This classic Irish basket starts with a large round base with a most unusual weave in the middle of the base. A ring of unpeeled willow is included in the weaving. A foot wale is followed by staking up. The short siding is in three-rod waling. A rod border completes this sturdy basket.
