The Wicker Picnic Basket is our most popular advanced kit design! Featuring all round reed construction incorporating a 12x14 D handle, this basket is truly a picnic basket to hand down through the family.
As shown, the base and lids are split spoke design with half-crosses, a reliable technique for strength and durability. You can even weave a version of this without the lids, if you prefer an open basket for some purposes.
You're going to love weaving it as much as we enjoyed designing it!
