Ply-Split Zig-Zag Basket Description:
For the ply-split Zig-Zag basket, Dark and Light cords are arranged and split following a pattern graph to create a zig-zag design. The tendency of cords to curve as they change function is encouraged and emphasized. The sides are worked in continuous twined linkings which gives stripes with an open, almost lacy appearance. Separate cords on each of the 4 sides create a square rim, with a tassel in each corner. Finished dimensions: 8" wide x 4" tall, not including tassels.
