A waste paper basket with spirals

Its been a long time since I made a basket with a spiral design. I had to look up how to do it. Was it to weave with three weavers, one a contrasting colour, over a number of stakes divided by three less one, or three plus one? For the outside spiral shown here, it was three minus one, so the 32 stakes were the necessary number.

I will make another one with green contrasting colour, and weave half its height as regular three rod waling, and then the rest as reverse three rod waling. That should produce a spiral and a reverse spiral too.

Then I will weave a shallow bowl with the spiral on the inside.

As you can see the basket also could function as a plant stand.
