The simplest way to splice is to weave the short end back down through the coils, following the path of previous stitches, and cutting of the excess flush with the 'worst side' of the basket. Thread a new string on the needle, starting 2 or 3 coils below the one being added, weave the new string up along the path of previous stitches to the bundle being attached.
Increase the number of stitches when stitches become too widely spaced to hold the bundle together securely (3/4 in.). This can be accomplished by making two separate stitches where there would normally be one, or increase the number of stitches with a round of 'V'stitches.
