What you'll need to make one of the Spiral Weave Baskets:
#5 Round Reed (5 oz.) Spokes for base and sides
#2 Round Reed (1 oz.) Weavers for the base
#3 Round Reed (6 oz.) Weavers for 3-rod arrow - 2 oz. Natural + 2 oz. of a dyed #3 + 2 oz. of another dyed #3
#4 Round Reed (1/2 oz.) for the four-rod coil
In most cases it is more economical to purchase a one pound coil of each size of Natural Round Reed listed above than to purchase only the quantity of feet of each size. #3 Round Reed in dyed colors is available in 1/4 lb. coils.
