COVERS : Page 38

The cover is made in the same way as the basket, except that the spokes are bent gradually up from the centre in a rounded flare. When four weavers have been used, and the cover is exactly the size of the basket, it is bound off and completed with the simple border made by bringing each spoke over the one on the right and down inside.

A ring (see Fig. 12) is attached to the front of

the cover, another one at the back, and a third and

slightly larger one is fastened on to the basket (just below the one on the front of the cover) across a spoke, and between the second and third rows of leaving from the top.
