It’s been several months since I started with this Plastic wire Nellikkai knot Baskets (initiated by Smita) and yet I couldn’t complete a single basket… I have asked many people who used to make these type of plastic wire baskets, but nothing turned out successfully.

Where am I?

Since it will be my learning, I started with a much smaller basket with a base containing only 5 lines of Nellikkai knots. So far, I can frame the base without any problem. But I am facing problem while making corners for this basket. This doesn’t mean that I will stop here; I will continue to try this and will post the complete basket when I am done.

Below gallery will show you where I am so far… If someone has an idea about how to proceed from here, please do share it here…

Once when I sort out this, I will definitely include a step-step video tutorial…
