Free Crochet Pattern - Jute Plant Pot Cosy

Hello! I am back this week with another FREE pattern release! It's for a jute plant pot cosy, crocheted up using just 2 bobbins of Hoooked Natural Jute. The finished pot cosy has a raw, chunky quality which heightens the lush greenery of the plant placed in it. The pattern is written out below and is also available as a free pdf download in my Ravelry Store.

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.

Finished size:

22cm diameter, 19cm tall

Abbreviations (UK terms):

ss - slip stitch
dc - double crochet
BLO - back loop only

close up


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.

Happy hooking,
