  • Wide-eyed needle
  • Size #18 twisted mason line

Step 4:-

For making the edges of the coiled rope basket, glue in-between the side and top of the rope while wrapping your rope tightly with the glue and holding for at least 30 seconds to let it adhere completely. Moving upwards, wrap and then glue the rope twice across the circle.

Step 9:-

Glue this rope onto the previous circle for 2 more inches and then repeat this same step for 2 more times as you wrap the line around this rope. After you reach the 2nd row, line up the mason line about ½-inch before the wrapped section of the rope. Continue with this pattern until the desired effect is achieved.

After making two rows of rope, do this step in reverse; wrapping the ½ inch after the previous rope row’s wrapped section starts. For achieving an egg-like shape for your coiled rope basket, when you reach the 4th wrapped pattern row section, pull this rope inward. This will make the opening of the coiled rope basket narrow.

Step 10:-

After the coiled rope basket pattern is finished, glue another row of rope on the top and trim this rope at the end. Put some hot glue on the tip of this final rope row and tuck it to one side of the last row.
