The desire to weave little baskets announced itself without warning and before I knew it I had a small collection.
The tallest in medium weight jute was my first attempt. Weaving the edge to the outside wasn’t quite the effect I wanted, but it was sturdy, and I was keen to try another one. Subsequent ones were made from nålbinding linen on a jute coil base, and weaving with waxed linen (the cream coloured one), fine jute and linen yarn (the tiniest one).
This was my second attempt, in finer jute with more tension. Weaving the rim to the inside worked well, but I relaxed the tension on subsequent baskets to round out the shapes.
A ball of embroidery floss nestles nicely in this one.
The smallest basket, woven from linen. Just big enough to hold a wish!
