    Hi, how do I add whenu to my work to increase it so it will fit around an odd shaped container. The bottom is square and goes up 5 rows but then flares out? Any ideas?

    Hi Ceven, I have instructions on how to add strips on pages 101 - 103 in my book ‘Weaving Baskets, Backpacks, Boxes and Other Projects’ which you can purchase directly from me through my Shop page. The book is in most libraries too. Also, you can get some idea of how to add strips in from Rita Baker’s Youtube video on weaving hats, from around the 6.15 time onwards. Good luck with the weaving. Send me a photo of the finished piece if you get the chance - I’d love to see it.
