In coffee bag weaving, there are often plenty of coffee bag parts left over, if you are weaving patterns that fit only part of the coffee bag. This happens to me, especially with Juhla Mokka coffee bags. A golden coffee cup with a red base is not one of my favorites as a color combination, so the lower parts of the coffee bags often go unused.
Most of the bags and baskets I weave are in some way precisely designed in terms of patterns, but this one is mixed with strips cut from Juhla Mokka coffee bags without a special pattern plan. The basket is woven with a combination of square weaving and windmill weaving. The coffee bags are cut into 5,4 cm wide strips, which are folded into three-layered rings. In the following video you can see instructions for this weaving technique (the basket in the video is woven only from the upper parts of the Juhla Mokka bags and the size of the basket is slightly larger):

The height of the basket is two squares (16,5 cm), width three squares (24 cm) and depth five squares (40 cm). In total, 204 strips were used to weave the basket, which, if cut from whole coffee packets, would be about 51 coffee packets.
