Weaving technique

Form of your product depends on the laying of the rod. And such technician a lot.

I want to tell about the most applied of them:

  • Simple weaving is when the twig alternately by means of all the racks. Alternating outdoor and inside. Very common weaving method among beginners;
  • Double weaving. We begin as with the single one, then each subsequent twig is pressed the previous one and remove a little upstairs. A peculiar wave is formed;
  • Three twigs. This method will not cause difficulties if you at least once in the life of a moster. The essence of the same. The first number is single weaving, and then gradually add on a twist. Bring to the quantity we need and braid a pigtail;
  • Edge. As a rule, it is formed from the remaining not involved racks. We take each one of them and alternately wrap the product inside. It is necessary to act as accurately as possible so that the rods remain entire. For the manufacture of edges you can also use the technique «hoop», The most used when designing wicker furniture. Take a vine with a diameter of 12-15 mm, retreating a little from the edge, make a shallow incision and start gradually to give it a circle shape. For fixing two ends, the wire or strong rope is suitable. In the process of processing, you can easily decorate them;
  • The handle is the most tender part, as a rule, it is she who comes into disrepair of the first. Therefore, a fat rod is always taken as the basis, without signs of previously existing bitch on it. Handle length is equal to half the perimeter of the product. For the feet of the handle, use the maximum long branches, so it will look neat. Castle is a part that connects the handle with your product. Sprigs that are as close as possible to the handle begin alternately to fly first right to left and vice versa. Ultimately, you get a pattern that remotely resembling a star. From the number of such turns, the strength of the attachment of the handle, which means its service life.
