Ply-Split Spiral Basket Description:
The start for the ply-split Spiral basket consists of 4 long cords added by ply-split darning. Cords are worked as a spiral SCOT braid, with an edge cord at the fell frequently splitting previously-worked braid to create a bowl shape. Instructions show how to finish by wrapping the braid with a Dark cord and unplying all cords. Finished dimensions: 2" tall x 5" wide, not including fringe.
