Ply-Split Firecracker Basket Description:
The ply-split Firecracker basket has 2 identical hexagonal bases, placed one on top of the other. The Dark base is on the inside, and the Light base is on the outside. A ring of Dark cords outlines the bottom. The design on the basket sides is created following a pattern graph. A long Dark cord creates a rim. It circles the basket 6 times, as the Dark cord ends are pulled through it. Untwisted Light cords leap upward from the basket rim. Finished dimensions: 2" wide x 4-3/4" tall, not including untwisted Light cords.
