This crochet pattern bundle consists of three (3) separate PDF files: Round Jute and Cotton Stacking Baskets (Pattern 301), Square Jute and Cotton Stacking Baskets (Pattern 303), and Round Lace Jute and Cotton Stacking Baskets (Pattern 302).
JaKiGu crochet patterns are comprehensive (20, 25, and 20 pages respectively), and contain detailed instructions, illustrative photos, helpful tips, photo tutorials, and a summary of crochet skills needed for this project.
JaKiGu patterns are written in standard American terms. Collectively, they contain two non-standard stitches, which are explained in great detail both in words and pictures.
Though I do not discourage anyone from attempting to crochet these baskets, the round pattern will be best suited for an intermediate crocheter with confidence crocheting basic crochet stitches, and with variety of materials. The square baskets pattern and the lace baskets patterns would be best suited for a very experieced crocheter. Ideally, this will not be your first crochet project. If you have never worked with jute before, please be prepared to be working with a fiber much stiffer and rougher than traditional crochet yarns.
3-ply 3 mm jute; 4-ply, medium weight cotton*
5.5 mm and 11.5 mm hooks
*Specific brands, weights, and quantities of jute and cotton are included in each instructional booklet, as are the tips on finding the best alternatives if you can’t source the suggested materials.
