    Love these!! Thank you

    Hi, in round 5 of this basket i am unable to get 72 stitches. Is there a mistake with the instructions.

    1. Pauline

      Dear Kay, thank you for your message, the increases are 12 per round, I just had a look at the pattern and it seems to read correctly to me, not sure, but maybe in one of the rounds prior, there is a stitch missing? Let me know how you go, but just remember increases of 12 per round, it should get you through and if not just add one at the end to make up the 72 before the next round.

    How do you make the smaller ones?

    1. Pauline

      Hi Susan, sorry for the late reply, to make smaller ones, just reduce the pattern by half, the first round circle will have only 6 st’s instead of 12.

  4. Kelly

    The jute I’m using is very hard to deal with. It’s stiff and sheds a lot. Any suggestions?

    1. Pauline

      Hi Kelly, yes i have found different Jute strings to be completly different in texture and workablitly. Maybe try a different brand and see how you go.

  5. Anuradha

    Loved this and made medium size. Did not follow exact stitch count but came up good.

    1. Pauline

      Lovely! may I ask, where did you get the jute from? and was it easy to work with?
