BraidBowl is a made up word for this classic design of braided baskets. Dianne Tobias taught me the technique-she is an expert braided basket maker and we wanted to add hooking as a design element. We worked on the design together-hopefully for a class in 2015. I am working on a BraidBowl design for knitters, braiders, hookers. The hooked design will reflect those art/craft forms. Thanks to Dianne for getting me started and stay tuned for more.
