  2. Cut a 1yd. peace of 4 ply or #72 natural jute to use as a wrapping cord. Tie a wrapping knot 3in. below the center of all cords for 3in.
  3. Dived cords into four groups of three cords each. Number groups 1-4. Tie a Chinese Crown Knot for 3 knots.
  4. Take the 3in brass ring and wrap it with the 3-ply Jute.
  5. Put all 4 groups of cords through the wrapped ring. Now drop down 3 1/2in. taking the center cord from each group and Double Half Hitch it onto the ring 90° apart. Take the other two cords from each group and Double Half Hitch each cord onto the ring at an equal distance apart. You should have 12 cords tied onto the ring.
  6. Divide cords into three groups of four cords each. Taking one group of cords, begin by dropping down 3 1/2in. and begin tying a square knot sinnet for 3 1/2 in. (about 5 knots).
  7. Add one of the 3/4in. beads on the two filler cords, tie two square knots under it.
  8. Drop down 1in. and tie a square knot picot; push it up tight to the last square knot. Giving you a 1/2in. loop on each side.
  9. Drop down 3in and tie another square knot picot, push it up tight to the last square knot. Giving you a 1 1/2in. loop on each side.
  10. Repeat step #8. You now have three picots two 1in. (top and bottom) and one 3in. in the middle.
  11. Tie two more square knots followed by a half-knot sinnet for 6 knots (one complete turn).
  12. Drop down 2in. and tie a square knot cross over knot (make the knotting cords the filler cords and the filler cords the knotting cords). Tie three square knots under it, making it 3 1/2in. long.
  13. Drop down 1in. and tie a square knot; push it up close to the last knot. Giving you a 1/2in. loop.
  14. Place one 1/2in. wooden bead on each knotting cord, and tie a square knot under it.
  15. Repeat step#13. Tie two more square knots under it, giving you three total.
  16. Drop down 3in. and tie three square knots.
  17. Tie a half-knot sinnet for 6 knots (one complete turn). Followed by two square knots.
  18. Repeat steps 6-17.
  19. Drop down 6in and tie a row of alternating square knots, to connect the sinnets and begin the basket.
  20. Drop down 2in and tie another row of alternating square knots.
  21. Tie two more rows of alternating square knots up close to the last row to close the basket.
  22. Cut a 1yd long peace of 3-ply natural jute to use as a wrapping cord. Begin the wrap right below the last row of square knots. Wrap for 2in tuck ends up under and glue.
