hi,
 I too am interested in trying this some day (wish list) , but here's what
popped up from a google search. First site has tons of links and examples.
 <A HREF="http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Trail/9114/links.html">The Pine
Needle Group, Pine Needle Basket Links</A>

http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Trail/9114/links.html

this site has a clear diagram of how to start to coil a pine needle basket.
 <A HREF="http://www.nativetech.org/coil/coiinstr.html">NativeTech:
Instructions for Coiled Pine Needle Baskets</A>
http://www.nativetech.org/coil/coiinstr.html

 <A HREF="http://pineneedlegroup.tripod.com/">The Pine Needle Group, a group
gathered to further the art of coiling...</A>

 <A HREF="http://www.nwbasketweavers.org/index.html">Northwest Basket Weavers
- Vi Phillips Guild</A>
http://www.nwbasketweavers.org/index.html

A commercial site with info and an area to order how to books
  <A HREF="http://pinebaskets.tripod.com/booklets.html">Peg's Basketry pine
needle basket basketry how books booklets publications instructions</A>
 http://pinebaskets.tripod.com/booklets.html

a site where the weaver describes herself as a pine needle junkie ( too
funny)
 <A HREF="http://www.pineneedleart.com/">Joyce's Pine Needle Art: "I'm a Pine
Needle Junkie!"</A>
http://www.pineneedleart.com/

and there are many many mor e, but this should help you get started,
last year there was a threaad about this subject on artsednet, but I couldn't
pull it up from the archives. There is a list member who does this, and at
one time was bombarded with requests for needles.

Hope this helps,
Christine Besack :)
