Ply-Split Loopy Basket Description:
The base for the Loopy basket starts with 2 cords, surrounded by concentric squares which increasingly curve as cords are added. Cylindrical sides increase in diameter as the basket grows by increasing the twist between splittings. Loops at the top edge, with all cord ends pulled back through the basket. Finished dimensions: 3-1/2" tall x 6" wide.
