work in progress: coiled crochet vessel

Jute and Cotton Series meets Coiled Crochet. The result? Shapely Vessels.

I love this stout crochet bowl. It is everything I always desired in a crochet container: substantial, sturdy, versatile, and totally awesome.

A pattern with an amazingly detailed step-by-step photo tutorial is coming soon!

  1. I purchased your pattern for the square and round stacking baskets, but just couldn’t work with the jute. Any suggestion for the type(s) of yarn to work with that would give comparable results? Thanks

    1. Hi, Becky. I remember our Etsy conversation 🙂 Based on reports by a few customers who successfully replaced 2 strands of jute with 1 strand of t-shirt yarn, I am looking into t-shirt yarn as a possible substitute. I’ll keep you posted. I would love to find a gentler alternative for those who find jute too rough (even though I love working with it, and will continue to develop patterns using this versatile and budget-friendly natural fiber). Even though in theory it sounds promising, I already suspect the finished basket may not be as sturdy when crocheted with t-shirt yarn simply because t-shirt yarn has much more stretch to it than jute, and is also way softer and pliable. But that’s precisely what makes it a dream to work with! It may be a compromise you might be willing to make. Softer material, softer basket 😉

What do you think?
