The pictured basket uses three warm colors and three cool colors, plus an outline color. Specifically the pictured basket uses cords made with UKI pearl cotton; not all these colors are currently available..
Each cord is 68 inches long. There are two groups of each color for a total of 72 cords. The cords in the article were made with 10/2 UKI mercerized cotton, 4 ends per ply, with a 15% take-up on the initial over-twis
The basket starts the same as the smaller version, but uses six groups of cords in each direction.
See the pictures at the right for color order.
