Learn the most basic weaving technique, a simple over and under, on a multi-stranded warp structure to create this lovely basket. Natural short fiber flax adds a rustic and yet firm form to this square basket. Complete the look with a beautiful arched finishing and lovely rope handle. Use as an Easter Basket or put your favorite spring plant and give to a friend to spread some cheer!

The pattern comes with two finishes, simple and braided to add to your weaving toolbox.  Basket measures 5" x 5" x 4.5" high.

I've included an option to make two baskets, in which case you'll receive the same items as above, as well as an additional spool of cord in color indicated. (If you want some combo with Onyx, just let me know in the notes!)

Cute little basket!

Really enjoyed creating this April basket! The instructions were easy to follow and I completed it in about 3 hours. I did struggle with the last step of using the darning needle to weave the extra end pieces. I was about to give up but decided to try using a large safety pin. That worked like a charm for me! I will try to add a picture of my modification. I didn’t add the handle as I’m thinking of using some braided leather that I have. Thank you so much for creating a kit for this basket!
