Jute comes in colors other than brown or green!! I didn't realize this until I came across it on a florist site. The drawback: a spool of 100 yards is twice the price of the regular jute found at the hardware store, and that excludes the shipping.  Well, after I splurged on a spool of navy blue, I crocheted a small basket to showcase this beautiful agavoides and some sedum. I didn't put any soil in there.  The succulents will last a very long time.

I worked in a spiral with single crochet stitches and an F-hook.  I wrapped the last round of half-double crochet stitches around a wire ring that I made from 19 gauge wire. The hanger is also made from the same gauge wire. The hook is an ornament hook.
