Combine flour with yeast. Heat milk and butter. Add milk, salt and sugar to flour mixture. Mix well. Form a ball and leave it to rise.
On a flat surface, roll three-quarters of dough with rolling pin until you get a 10" square. Cut into 24 strips.

Lay 12 strips next to each other, and use the other 12 to weave between them. Cover ovenproof bowl with butter. Place it upside down on a cookie sheet. Place the strips on top of the bowl, cut the ends. Brush the strips with egg yolk. Bake for 45 minutes in 350 oven. After 20 minutes, cover the strips with aluminum foil. Remove from the oven and let it cool. Roll the remaining dough into a rectangle; cut it into 3 strips (to create a rim for a basket).
Braid the strips and place them on a cookie sheet. Brush with egg yolk and bake for 20 minutes. Gently remove basket and pin the rim onto it with toothpicks.
