Finishing the First Row
Rows 2 - 6 or 7
Trim the tails of the spokes where they come from the
Gretchen border to approximately 1/2" in length
Cut with the sheers so that the cut edge is facing the
basket. This makes the ends seem to disappear,
rather than stick out with the cut edge showing.
Trim the outside ends of weavers in the four rod
weave with the cut edge angled downward.
Cut so the weaver reaches just beyond 1/2 way to the spoke on it's right.
Do the same on the inside start tips of your weavers. Leaving
just a bit more length. You don't want the ends to miss each other!
When you are finished, you should be able to run your hands around both
the inside and the outside without snagging any tails. The ends should seem
to disappear and be visible only by looking from the side of the weave.
