Found some stuff that may help...I have never weaved a basket. So; this is information I have found and my perspective on weaving a creel.

Basic Weaving:

Creels {Reference}:

I think you should be able to get started with that information. Especially if you are a crafty man. I would make a smaller-scale version first by using craft paper to make a pattern. Once you tweak the shape; just scale it up.

I would focus my research and information gathering on traditional basket making techniques. Then; just use those techniques to build your custom creel.

Be sure and share the results for us if you make some. I thoroughly enjoy these type of projects. Good luck!

I was surprised how expensive some of the classic creels retail for on the internet.
