4. Square Basket Borders

Square baskets are finished in their own unique way that's designed to make the corners very neat and square looking. The changes are made only around the corners and the borders are otherwise the same. We will focus mainly on behind-two rod borders, as these are the most commonly used borders for square work, but we'll also look at behind-one rod borders and various types of plait borders. We'll begin with exposed corner posts, proceed to covered corner posts, and finally look at blunt corners.
