Beaded Basket Pattern

Before you begin ...
1 meter of fishing line, seed beads of desired size (all one size) in two colors
Time required: About 0.5 hours
Techniques: Beadweaving, rosette stitch
Difficulty: Very Easy

Step 1

Step 1:Work from the center to the edge of the pattern (starting from the bottom of the basket, shown in the diagram)

ROW 1:
String 6 or 8 green seed beads to make a tight circle. Tie a knot (between first and last beads strung). String through each bead in the circle again, then cut the thread short.

ROW 2:
Ladder Stitch 1 green seed bead to each green seed bead in Row One, for a total of 6 or 8 beads.
Then lace 1 green seed bead in between each of the green beads, for a total of 6 or 8 beads. This step is like peyote stitch.

ROW 3:
Ladder Stitch 1 green seed bead to the previous ladder stitched green seed bead, for a total of 6 or 8 beads.
Then lace 2 white seed beads in between each green seed bead, for a total of 12 or 16 beads.

Repeat ROW 3 to make your basket as tall as you would like.
Either ladder stitch a handle or just string beads, attach to the opposite side and run through several beads and tie a knot to finish your basket.

Step 2

Step 2:You can make a larger basket by making the rosette larger. Simply continue to increment row by row the number of beads that are peyote stitched between the ladder stitched beads. Once you have decided on how wide the base will be, continue to add rows to make your basket taller, but do not increment the number of beads that are peyote stitched. Instead, use the same number of beads in your lacing (peyote) steps in each additional row. Enjoy!

What do you mean by "a round figure"? What kind of bracelets did you make? You can post a picture in the forum. We'd all love to see it!

Where can I learn to do beadweaving? I invented my own way for bracelets. I made my sister a bracelet with her name on it, and it looked great! But will that way work for a round figure, too?
