Ply-Split Chameleon Basket Description:
The Chameleon basket starts with a flat, squarish base, using only Light cords, perpendicular to each other. The cords making up the base become spokes for the sides of the basket. One long decorative cord is used for sides and rim, which circles the basket as cord ends are pulled through it. Detailed instructions and photos for making the decorative cord are included. Finished dimensions: 2" tall" x 3-3/4" wide.
