|finished Jute Plant Pot Cosy|
You will need:
2 bobbins of Hoooked 100% natural jute in colours of your choice (link above)
12mm wooden or metal crochet hook
stitch marker/ piece of yarn to keep track of rounds
5.5 stitches and 6 rows per 10cm using 12mm hook or appropriate hook to achieve gauge.
22cm diameter, 19cm tall
Abbreviations (UK terms):
ss - slip stitch
dc - double crochet
BLO - back loop only
Begin with a magic loop with 8dc worked into it.
Round 1 - 2dc in each dc around (16 stitches)
Round 2 - (2dc in 1st dc, 1dc in next dc) 8 times (24 stitches)
Round 3 - (2dc in 1st dc, 1dc in each of next 2dc) 8 times (32 stitches)
Round 4 - 1dc into the BLO of each dc (this is unseen from the outside of the pot but gives a good crease for the base of the pot cover) (32 stitches)
Rounds 5-10 - 1dc in each dc, changing colours once the first colour runs out.
Finish with a ss into the next st. Cut yarn and sew in ends.
That's it! A very simple pattern which you can easily adapt to suit the size of your plant pot! Simply continue increasing 8 stitches per round until you are a few centimetres short of your required diameter then move on to Round 4. Please note that the specified dimensions used almost 2 bobbins so you may need more yarn if you want to go bigger.
