Basketweave crochet.

I had some jute lying around from another project and thought I’d try my hand at making a fruit basket. Image

Here are a few pics of the process and the finished product:

I must say that this material is a challenge, but after it was all done, I think it looks lovely and suits it’s purpose.  I like that I can flip the edges up for the handles, or fold them over.  I’m in the process of writing out the pattern to add to my Etsy Shop.  I’m also making the same one in a larger size out of kitchen cotton.  Here’s that work in progress:

We’re participating in our first Bountiful Basket this week (so excited!!!), and I wanted something special for the produce.
