Recently I took all my basket-making supplies to Rockport and last weekend, when we were down there, I made a set of three baskets from a pattern I found on line. These are called “Cat Head” baskets which, as Will pointed out, look like a cat’s head only if you turn them upside down and imagine that the points of the base are the ears. Here are largest two baskets. The shaping of the head was the new challenge for me. At about the third row, you start pulling the bottom of the basket toward you and the sides out. After about 2 inches of that, you start reeling in the weave a bit. I was very pleased with the result, especially the nesting aspect of them.
Many thanks to Baskets ‘N the Works of Spring, Texas for posting this free pattern!
