1 10-inch spoke of No. 3 rattan,

4 weavers of No. 2 rattan.Cover and Fastenings—8 18-inch spokes of No. 3 rattan,

5 weavers of No. 2 rattan,A knitting needle.

A bottom, slightly raised in the centre, is woven to a diameter of two and a half inches. After the spokes have been wet until pliable they are bent up in a rounded flare, like a saucer in shape. Four weavers are used in under-and-over weaving, and the basket should then be about five and a quarter inches in diameter. The edge is bound off and a border made in this way. Each spoke is brought under the next spoke on the right, then over one and inside of the basket. The first part of the border should be left loose and open so that the last spokes can be more easily woven in.
