I love to crochet using different materials. Jute is one of my favorites. It’s durable and a little stiff yet pliable. It’s a good choice for coasters, trivets, rugs, and other housewares. Working with jute can be a bit difficult because it’s not as soft or as flexible as yarn. A larger crochet hook makes it easier to work with jute. I used a size N hook to make this crochet hexagon jute trivet.

- This pattern is written in American Standard crochet terms.
- Work pattern in the round without turning work.
- The pattern is easy, but jute can be difficult to work with.
- The use of an M/N/P size crochet hook can make it easier to crochet jute.
CARE: If trivet becomes soiled, wipe gently with a damp cloth and soapy water. Air dry. Do not submerge trivet in water. The jute will weaken and separate.
BLOCKING: Blocking is not needed for this project.
MEASUREMENTS: The hexagon is 11-inches wide from point to point.
