Some of you may have watched our Facebook live video showing how you can cut up an old, unwanted pair of jeans to make a continuous strand of denim yarn. In the video, we showed you a pot crocheted from this yarn, and here is the step-by-step pattern as promised! Orrrrrrr, you can follow it on our Facebook Live video:
What we used:
Cut up denim jeans (we found that one leg was enough for a pot). Just follow this vid we made!
1x 15mm WATG rosewood crochet hook
1x yarn marker (a little scrap of our Jersey Be Good yarn works perfectly)
1x plant (optional)
Step 1. Make a slip knot.
Step 2. Make a foundation chain of 3 chain stitches.
Step 3. Join into a little ring by working a slip stitch into the first stitch of your foundation chain.
You will now work into the ring, see where my finger is pointing? That’s where you need to go
Step 4. Work 6 single crochet stitches into the ring.
Step 5. Join your round by working a slip stitch into the last stitch.
Step 6. Now take your little scrap of Jersey Be Good yarn and lay it directly in front of your crochet hook. This will make it easier for you to see where your round begins.
Step 7. Next you’re going to work a single crochet increase by working 2 single crochet stitches into the first stitch. Repeat this 5 times more, you should have reached your yarn marker and be able to count 12 stitches into total.
Step 8. Reposition your yarn marker by pulling it out of your crochet and placing it directly in front of your crochet hook, as you did in step 6.
Step 9. Make a single crochet increase by working 2 single crochet stitches into your next stitch. Then work a single crochet into the next stitch. Repeat these steps a further 5 times. Once you have done this, you should have reached your yarn marker and be able to count 18 stitches in total.
Step 10. Reposition your stitch marker.
Step 11. Work 1 round in single crochet.
Step 12. Keep working rounds of single crochet until your pot is the size you want it to be. In total, we worked 5 rounds, but it’s completely up to you!
So there you have it, one completed crochet pot!
wow, I’m impressed…thank you for showing how easy it is…now on to all my other fabric pants.
