Round jute and cotton stacking baskets. The long-awaited pattern has arrived! The twenty-page PDF file contains detailed instructions, illustrative photos, helpful tips, photo tutorials, and a summary of crochet skills needed for this project. Get it by clicking here.
I really enjoy working with jute and figuring out how it could best work for a basket that is meant to be used. Jute is an interesting material; stiff yet pliable at the same time – perfect for a base that won’t get soiled or fray easily.
The most rewarding part of creating this pattern, however, was the invention of a special stitch. It is vital to creating a decorative seam at a perfectly right angle right where basket sides attach to the base. How to successfully crochet this stitch is explained in great detail in a 7-page photo tutorial.
I am so thrilled about the continued interest in baskets from my Jute and Cotton Series that I have been adding more. Here’s a peek at what’s new.
A pattern booklet for a matching square set of jute and cotton stacking baskets is now available as well and can he found here.
In addition to the same decorative seam stitch as its round counterpart, the square basket pattern also features my proud invention: a unique stitch to create nice, sharp corners. I’ll walk you through it step-by-step in a wonderfully detailed photo tutorial.
And if you are as much in love with the neutral look of jute with cotton, you might like this geometric/lacey crochet basket set. It’s made in coiled crochet technique – a technique I am passionately trying to get to as many people as possible because it is hands down the best way to make sturdy, durable baskets. Pattern for this basket can be purchased here.
My newest pattern is also made in coiled crochet technique. I adore both its simplicity and durability. Pattern for this set of colorful coiled crochet stacking baskets is available here, and you can read more about the coiled crochet technique here.
When I say “a pattern,” I mean so much more than a couple pages of instructions written in crochet shorthand. My patterns are highly detailed PDFs with beautifully organized pages filled with tips, photo tutorials, detailed step-by-step instructions, explanation of each stitch needed to complete the project, and high quality images. Take a peek at the 54-page guide I wrote for this last design:
