My Chair Caning Project


I've discovered chair caning and here's my first project.

I had intended to do the classic six-sided pattern but ended up with something like the double lace Victoria. The holes became tight and impossible to make the final finishing border. I'm ok with these "mistakes." The chair is extremely sturdy and looks nice, and it also looks handmade without the border.


I have a mate to this chair so I will have to repeat the "mistakes" so they look the same.
This project is quicker and in many cases easier than knitting or crocheting. I enjoyed doing it and have several more chairs to cane.


P.S. I continue the literary and art work.
