Ketjukuvioinen Juhla Mokka kahvipussikori.

experimenting with corner pieces

There have been so many samples of square weaving in this website project that I wanted to make baskets for storage that are easy to browse. Baskets with the height of a half-square can be woven using corner pieces, and in addition, traditional squares have been used here to make the basket elongated and to hold more squares in it. Juhla Mokka was chosen as the material for the baskets, because I have already made enough bags from it. The first basket was made of chain-patterned Juhla Mokka squares.

The corner pieces are connected in the same way as the squares. In this basket, the hinges are only in the middle of the flat surfaces of the basket and it is easier to cover them. The corners also become smoother when they have no knots or other seams on them. The chain pattern continues nicely around the entire basket and the basket is solid red on the inside and bottom.

The second basket came with 8×8 corner pieces and 6×8 squares in the middle. Juhla Mokka bags always leave much narrower strips from the bottom and the top parts of the bags due to the tearing of the edges, so now I was able to use them as well.

The different widths look nice in the basket, but don’t stand out too much. There are also different shades of red in the basket, because the strips are cut from Juhla Mokka bags in different places and the same strip may already have different shades.
