1. Rod Borders

Rod borders are probably the most commonly used type of border. They're very efficient due to their strength, simplicity and quick making time. It is a rudimentary subject in the craft of basket weaving, that must be understood from start to finish, and practiced to the point of becoming a second nature. I demonstrate with center cane because it can be easily untangled and used over and over again. If you are a beginner, focus on the basics and leave the variations for later.
