good patterns, NOT for a beginner, requires adjustments,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Ultimate Basket Book: A Cornucopia of Popular Designs to Make (Paperback)
I bought this to move on to the next step in my basket making skills and patterns. The patterns have some lovely baskets. Some of the made baskets were obviously thrown together for the photo. Some of the reed not even dyed according to pattern. The photos are often misleading, especially in size as many of the baskets are too small to use for anything. The patterns are not organized well, and the length of reed is often too short. That's all fine and dandy...for an advanced basket maker. If you want to supplement your patterns, this has a wide range of patterns and materials used. However, if you want to learn anything about making baskets-do NOT buy this book! Use Basketry by B. J. Crawford to learn how, and THEN you can get this.
