Ply-Split Waffle Basket Description:
Bottom and sides in POT (plain oblique twining) with a full twist between the splittings. With 2-color cords, this results in the "waffle" appearance, with one color dominant on one side of the basket, and the other color dominant on the reverse. A long 2-ply, 2-color cord creates a striped rim. It circles the basket 6 times. Finished dimensions: About 3-1/4" x 5".
