This pattern is for instructions to weave a large gathering type basket with a wood base and pottery handles. The basket would be suitable for towels, toys, afghans, or a yarn basket. The space dyed reed used on the basket in the photo was inspired by my grandson's fascination with the "Minecraft" computer game.
You must be familiar with basic basket weaving techniques. The PDF pattern (in English) is available for download once payment has cleared.
Price is for the pattern only and NOT FOR THE FINISHED BASKET.
Skill level: Intermediate
Approximate Dimensions of the Finished Basket:
17" Diameter at the Rim

Thanks for choosing a pattern by Bright Expectations LLC. By purchasing or downloading a pattern from Bright Expectations, you are purchasing a license to use the pattern for PERSONAL use and agree to the following terms: All digital images and/or sample images contained within are Copyright © Becky Bechtel / Bright Expectations LLC, and all rights reserved.

SO WHAT CAN YOU DO?
:: You may use the pattern for weaving baskets for your personal use. Individualize them as you wish by altering colors, size, and/or design pattern. Be creative and be inspired.
:: You may create a basket and sell it at your local art or craft fair, the holiday bazaar at your church, or donate it for the fundraiser down at your child's school as long as credit is given to Bright Expectations as the basket designer.
:: You may print a hard copy of the pattern for your own personal use. If that pattern becomes unusable, by all means, print another one.
:: Want to show off your new basket? Go right ahead, but give a girl some credit! You may submit a photo of your finished basket using Bright Expectations patterns to web sites (Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram, Stumbleupon, Twitter, etc.), magazines or other publications as long as proper credit is given to Bright Expectations. A credit with a link back to my website must be displayed (www.brightexpectationsbaskets.com).
WHAT YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO DO:
:: No sharing please! You may not provide a copy, share or distribute any pattern to any other individual or business. That means don’t forward in an email or newsgroup, post on a basketry website, or save to a thumb drive and take to your dear Aunt Martha.
:: This pattern or any of the pictures contained within is not for commercial use. Nope, none, zip, zero, zilch. That goes for a trademark, design-mark, business name, service mark or logo. You can’t use any part of any pattern for commercial purposes - even if it’s for an item that won’t be sold. That means no brochures, web sites, business cards and the likes. You may not use any pictures for any product or project that will be sold or otherwise used to try and make a buck. You can't make copies of the pattern and pass out to all of your weaver friends at the local guild to save them the small fee of purchasing their own pattern. Teaching a class and want to use one of my patterns but don't want to buy one for each student? Well, let me know and we'll see if we can work something out for a quantity discount.
:: Don’t tell anyone (not even the newbie in your basket weaving group that you would like to impress with your weaving skills) that the pattern and/or designs are your own, no matter if you change them up a bit, add to them, or take from them.
:: You may NOT weave an exact basket like the design is portrayed on the pattern and proceed to sell the basket on Etsy or through any venue that Bright Expectations also markets finished baskets. That's not good for me or you - and plus, it's just plain rude.
Compiling the details for a basket weaving pattern along with good pictures is not a small task. I want to share the love of weaving with lots of people. I would just appreciate giving credit where credit is due and I appreciate your cooperation. Have fun and happy weaving!!
