Inside Out Jute Bowl

It's taken me awhile to post this pattern because I've been picky about the photos.

The pics below are taken with the right side facing...without turning it inside out

Here's a closeup of the sides
Either way is fine... I just prefer to turn mine inside out

Ok now to the good stuff. Here's how it's all done

3 ply jute (140 yards) I found mine at Dollar General (I know, huh) for a dollar each... I bought 2
Size K crochet hook
Yarn needle

St                    Stitch
Hdc                 Half double crochet
Sc                   Single crochet
Reverse sc       Reverse single crochet
Sl st                 Slip stitch
Ch                   Chain

5 sts or 4 rounds = 2 inches/ 5 cm

Note: Begin each rnd with ch 2 which counts as first hdc


Holding 2 strands of jute twine, ch 3.

Rnd 1:  7 hdc in 3rd ch from hook. The skipped chains count as first hdc of the rnd. Join with sl st. (8 hdc)

Rnd 2:  Ch 2, hdc in same st. 2 hdc in each st, join. (16 hdc)

Rnd 3:  Ch 2, hdc in same st, hdc in next st, (2 hdc, hdc) around, join. (24 hdc)

Rnd 4:  Ch 2, hdc in same st, hdc in next 2 sts, (2 hdc, hdc in next 2 sts) around, join. (32 hdc)

Rnd 5:  Ch 2, hdc in same st, hdc in next 3 sts, (2 hdc, hdc in next 3 sts) around, join. (40 hdc)

Rnd 6:  Ch 2, hdc in same st, hdc in next 4 sts, (2 hdc, hdc in next 4 sts) around, join. (48 hdc)

Rnd 7:  Ch 2, hdc in same st, hdc in next 5 sts, (2 hdc, hdc in next 5 sts) around, join. (56 hdc)

Begin working sides. The right side will always face you as you work. I've noticed this can be confusing for some who post photos with the right side turned inside. For this bowl that's exactly what we're doing, but don't turn inside out until you get to the last round.

For the sides I used the same technique as with the other baskets I've posted. For the next round, work under the loop on the back side of the stitch.

 This creates the seam separating the bottom and sides.

Rnd 8:  Working under the loop on the back of each stitch, work hdc in each st around. Join.

Rnd 9-10:  Repeat rnd 8.

Rnd 11:  Working in back side of stitch of previous rnd, sc in 12 sts, ch 6, skip next 5 sts, sc in next 23 sts, ch 6, skip next 5 sts, sc in next 11 sts. Join. 

Now turn bowl inside out. The last rnd will be worked using reverse sc. To do this you will be working to your right on the round... Basically backwards.

Rnd 12:  Ch 1, Reverse sc in 11 sts, 7 reverse sc under ch 6 space, reverse sc in next 23 sts, 7 reverse sc under ch 6 space, reverse sc in last 12 sts. 

Finish off and weave ends.

I'm reviewing the pattern for mistakes, so feel free to comment with any questions. If you're unsure about the reverse sc, you tube has lots of video tutorials. I'll look and post the best one I can find later today.

  6. Love it! This will be a fruit basket for me. I'm going to Dollar General this week to see if I can find the twine. Thank you!

  7. Dollar General here I come. I love the basket. Thanks for sharing the pattern.

  8. Once again you have made a masterpiece, this basket is the best yet. Thank you for the pattern.

  9. This is such a great basket. I've never worked with is it on your hands? Is it rough to crochet with? Thanks! Jx

  10. Very cute. Thanks so much! x

  11. Hello! This pattern is so cute! Just finished mine in 2 hours with 2 1/2 balls of Jute. Hope you don't mind that I posted a link of your blog to my Raveley page here
    Thanks again for such a quick. easy, and oh so cute pattern!

  12. Thank you for this cute pattern! And both sides look good.
    Have a nice weekend :-D

  13. Gosh, I'm knitting with sisal, I bought it for a bowl, but it was too tough to work with. I love your bowl/basket here! Just found you and your great blog! Thanks for sharing!

  14. So cute! I keep meaning to give twine/jute a go with the crochet hook but not sure my hands will thank me!!

  15. Great design! Quick to make! Reasonably priced! And a great switch up from just using crochet to make accessory clothing (I think my mom is getting tired of scarves.) How rigid is the bowl? Thanks for the new ideas and consideration to simplistic designs for more novice artists! I'll be attempting a version here shortly... We'll see how it turns out! :)


  16. Love it! And knowing how much my cats love Jute I wonder if it would be sturdy enough to function as a kitty cat bed?

  17. Just finished the chunky basket and starting on this one! Thank you so much, making Christmas presents!

  18. It's gorgeous! I'm totally making one for my makeup in the bathroom... thank you Xx
