I haven’t used the zigzag weave for a while. I think it looks really effective when the willow behaves. I had some willow to use up last week so took the opportunity to have a play.
Zigzag weave is set up in the same way as French randing. In this basket I used double rods. When you’ve worked a row in one direction you take the weavers back in the other direction on the next row. By alternating the direction of the weave in this way, the zigzag climbs up the stakes.
Thank you to my son Aidan for the photos.
