Rinko
Basket Dimensions 10" Diameter X 3" Tall

Rinko Ami is a weaving technique that was first brought to the convention circuit by Judith Olney who learned it in Japan. Rinko is a twill technique, woven in the round, without a basket of upright spokes. Weaving the twill and joining the circle of spokes will take focus and concentration. This basket sits on a foot, woven with the spiraled center spokes. For my Rinko, I've chosen a different twill and different joining technique than Judith did. I'm including Judith's pattern in your kit so you can read her history of the basket and see her techniques. Thank you Judith for your encouragement and permission.
