Two Two Twill

Sounds like a dance step; "doin' the two-two twill" and it's oh-so-much fun with prepared red cedar bark, natural or dyed for contrast. Combine a classically great material and a rhythmical weavers' technique to make the first of many great baskets. So versatile, these "steps" can be interpreted in a lovely rising rectangle or free style graceful tune - finished with an exquisite folded border or go funky with lashing.
