The ply-split Venus basket has a 5-cord start, which leads to a pentagon and then to a 5-pointed star for the basket base. Shallow cylindrical sides have triangles extending from the star. A long rim cord circles the basket 5 times, as cord ends are pulled through it. Finished dimensions: 2-1/2" tall x 5" wide.
