I have been knitting with this beautiful yarn with jute and cotton mix to make a market bag. Here is the bag all done!
The yarn feels quite stiff when you touch it first and I struggled in winding it into a ball. but I didn’t find any difficulty in knitting with it until the first row of k2tog, that was the place I had to knit carefully as I was not able to hold two sts together at first, but didn’t face this in later rows. overall the yarn was a great experience with jute and I loved working with it.
One thought on “playing with Jute”
Yes, when one is so used to knitting with yarn that has elasticity it does feel different to knit with jute especially the k2tog’s. But at the end to have a bag that is light and can be folded and carried anywhere and is so stretchy that you can carry a lot of stuff in it makes all the effort worthwhile.
