Ply-Split Letter Tray Description:
The ply-split Letter Tray starts with a flat, rectangular base, with cords perpendicular to each other. Dark and Light cords are arranged and split to create the appearance of an interlaced design. One long cord splits all of the other cords for several rounds to create sides. The long cord changes functions to become the rim cord as side cord ends are pulled through it. Cords are then unplied and trimmed. Finished dimensions: 5-1/2" x 11-1/2"; about 4" deep, including fringe.
