Making a basket from pine needles
Pine needle baskets are made in places such as Central America, India and Africa
Material required for making a basket - The first thing you will need is of course pine needles you can make baskets from many different pine needles should be 5 inch or 12 cm longer the longer they are the easier is to work with them. You can gather the pin needles from the ground because trees of pine needles are very tall and their branches are also at very high so its difficult to pick it from the tree.
Only pick up the best clusters and avoid picking damage needles. Arrange the clusters that are facing the same directions please make sure what you need so that pine needles can continue service to the forest. You might be lucky to find full cluster of pin needles. Next step is to soften the pine needles and for this you need some water. Boil enough water to cover the needles and then put it on top of them and leave the needles to soak for about 30 minutes. Ones the pine needles have been soaked and drained you should have a very elastic pine needle that does not break while bending.
Making the Centre - Start by cutting a piece of your chosen thread two meter thread is good. Take your gage and put enough needles inside always in one direction. Check whether you are able to move gage up and down. Move the gage about 8 cm from the end of your pine needles and make a knot with your thread near the gage. Start wrapping the thread toward the pine needle cap once you have wrapped about 6 cm hold it and bend it in half now you can thread the needle and start stitching by passing the needle from one side of the bended coil to the other you can use pliers here if it is difficult for you to pull the needles through the coil continue doing this on the length of the coil until you have the two sides securely linked and now you can cut the access part of the needles make sure to cut it from the cluster side. Continue wrapping the coil about ten times. Use needle if gage sticks continue wrapping for 10 cm. Watch this video for making basket from pine needles.
