DIY Crochet Jute Bobble Basket Pattern from Persia Lou. This is a free pattern and jute is pretty inexpensive. I have never knit or crocheted with jute – would it be hard on the hands and fingers?
I received a really good answer from a reader: I’m currently knitting a produce bag with jute, and its surprisingly easy to work with! It’s rough, but not uncomfortable to hold. The only differences from regular yarn is that its not at stretchy, and tends to shed little strings as you work.
