Diamond Shape

This is a simple diamond shape. Notice mainly a 3 pattern. You can go either over or under where the blue dots are and the effect of the design will be determined from that, but generally the blue dotts indicate where the weave stroke has gone over. In a diagonal woven basket the design will go at about a 45 degree angle, allowing you to repeat any of the designs.

When weaving a design in a basket it is also necessary to plan out where your designs will be and then plan for the correct number of spokes to give you a repeat design that is evenly spaced.
