This large basket lends itself to so many things: boughs of greens with cones. Or a basket for mittens and hats.
I love the light green woven into this walnut stained basket. The swing handle makes the basket all the more multi purpose. the base is an open weave, but a tight one. It starts at 12 by 9 inches, is woven 8 inches tall, and opens to an oval 12 by 18 inches. The handle adds another 8 inches in height.
Pat Huckins is based in Greenville, on Prong Pond, and has been weaving baskets for many years. She learned to weave at a class in Hallowell and has enjoyed it ever since. She has taught many classes in the past and her favorite student and fellow weaver is her nephew Levi. Levi is a bright young man with Autism, though he does not let Autism define him. He loves to travel, surf, down hill ski, swim, and compete in Special Olympics. Levi and his Aunt Pat have started a new venture selling their baskets on Moosehead Marketplace. They hope you enjoy the baskets as much as they enjoy making them.
