Cover.—The cover is begun like the bottom of the basket, except that it is flared up and out from the very centre. Two weavers are used, and toward the end of the second the spokes are flared until they lie in a horizontal position. When the diameter is five and a quarter inches the edge is bound off and finished with the Rope Border described on page 39.
