Right to left. See DIAGRAM 4. 4 Hint: If the cane will not go all the way across the base, start a new lasher leaving a tail as you did in the very beginning. It is easier to tuck the old and new lasher after the base is finished. Continue lashing the base until all eleven horizontal spokes are lashed on. Now go back to any place where you left tails and make a simple knot and leave a tail. The tail will be caught in the side weaving for about two rows and then cut off. Remove the base from the board.
X 2 FORMING THE CAT-HEAD BASE: Taper one end of a long soaked weaver for long enough to go around one revolution. Make it at least half its normal width. See “Basket Class” for tapering a weaver. With the base flat on a table, right side up, weave around the base, over 2, under 2, (a locking row) for one row only. Weave opposite the base weaving to lock. See “Basket Class” for detailed instructions on locking row. See DIAGRAM 2. On the second row, begin the pattern stroke, over 2, under 1. Now begin to “sunburst” the stakes (push the stakes from the center of the sides to the corner).
Weave up to a height of 2” (measuring from the surface of the table as the basket sits). Taper the end of a piece of 4mm cane to overlap with the 3mm. As the 3mm is ending, slide the new tapered end of the 4 mm on top of the old one and continue to weave with both for 4 spokes. Make sure the old end is not visible from the inside or the outside. See “Basket Class” for more detail of how to add a weaver. The weaving pattern changes now to a TWILL WEAVE, over 2, under 2. Weave to a height of 10 1/2” .
