Color Mix:
In stock

ALERT: The Calliope Basket Kits  that include DOVE RAFFIA are currently backordered until February 29th. Any order including a Calliope Kit with Dove will ship after that date.

Natural raffia coils beautifully, transitioning organically from one color to another, creating a lightweight unique basket.  Learn this wonderful basic basketweaving technique, while not worrying too much about counting or exactness. GREAT BEGINNER BASKET WEAVING KIT! Shape your basket however is desired from flat to a curved container. There are so many ways to play with using two colors in your basketry--this free-hand way is a great way to start!

Kit includes enough to make 2 baskets:

:: 2 3 oz bundles of Madagascar Raffia in 2 Colors
:: Sharp Darning Needle
:: Clippers
:: Muslin Bag
:: Calliope Basket Pattern and Video

Basket measures 7.5" by 2" as shown but this can be variable depending on your desired size and shape. The last one I made was 6" by 1".

If you're looking for just the pattern, you can find it HERE.  Do you want to purchase the raffia on its own, look HERE.
