Cultural Narrative: 

It’s kind of like a mountain design on it. It looks like it has been repaired on the top. Joe Feddersen

The weaver starts in three different places for her designs. If you start in three different places as you go you don't have to count your stitches. This looks like a berry picking basket with yarn top. Elaine Emerson
