We’re going to my parents house for Thanksgiving dinner, so I thought I should make them a little something. I have a six-pack of jute in my craft stash, so I thought I would crochet a few jute coasters over the next couple of days.
Jute, a natural plant fiber, is made up of many threads. It comes in several sizes and weights. The size used in this pattern is similar to twine but a little thicker. The natural color of jute is a drab gray with discoloration in some of the threads, so I paired it up with a colored yarn. I picked Red Heart® Super Saver®, in Carrot since it’s still Fall, and Thanksgiving is around the corner. Jute can be a bit stiff, so a larger crochet hook is needed to work the stitches. These Crochet Jute Coasters are worked in single crochet and can be completed in a few hours.
