I recommend starting with a square one that is straight or gradually gets bigger toward the top. Much easier to get looking good than the more circular ones and looks just as good.

my major advise is when doing the weaving, on your vertical (small) bubbles - make them half the size of the width of your balloon - 260 would be 1" bubbles - 160, 1/2" - etc...

Oh, and the best advice is Be Patient. It'll probably take a lot of practice and you'll use up a lot of balloons. I HATE weaving but have made a small bit of peace with it because it's practically required if you're going to be doing fancier things. The first time I was making woven hats I spent hours using up 6 balloons at a pop (pun!) and most of them came out unacceptable.

very true mackerous - I'm a freak of nature - I love weaving - it was actually what I picked very first to learn and it turned out very well....

Like I said I'm a freak...

from what I've heard though weaving is evil for everyone else - lol....
