This is a fabulous DIY crochet bowl made with jute!
Not only will you have a chance to express your creativity, but you’ll also save a great deal of money. If you’ve seen such baskets in upscale shops and Web sites you know they can be pricey! This bowl is not only an easy crochet project, but it’s also quite pragmatic. It will be a beautiful addition to your home furnishings or perhaps too a very thoughtful gift for someone.
The key is crocheting with jute which gives you a very substantive and sturdy texture that will give you a bowl that is as useful as it is beautiful. And, by the way, jute is widely available and inexpensive. You can even find it at your local dollar store!
This wonderful — and free! — pattern is the “Inside Out Jute Bowl ” by designer Elizabeth of Crochet in Color. You will find both a written pattern and photos that will guide you to success from start to finish.
