          2. Sari Silk Nesting Bowls

          Crochet patterns that call for recycled sari silk yarn are often good choices for using flat yarn, as this yarn tends to be wide and flat. This is a great set of 4 crochet nesting bowls that range in size from under 3" diameter to about 6". Make them all or just make one in the size that you need.

          3. Heart Basket

          Bulky weight flat yarn (or double-stranded flat yarn in lighter weights) will work well for all types of crochet bowls and crochet baskets . This heart-shaped basket was originally designed to be made with sisal but can be created in many different materials and tape yarn is a nice choice.

          4. T-Shirt Yarn Bag

          Consider adapting at T-shirt yarn patterns for your flat yarn! Although the yarns are a bit different, they do have a lot of similarities. For example, try using tape yarn to make this small crochet purse. The yarn's thickness helps protect what you have inside and creates durable straps that will stand the test of time.

          8. Doily Rug

          Flat yarn works nicely in openwork crochet patterns, too! This is especially true for bulky weight flat yarn because the open spaces contrast nicely with the chunky crochet. This doily rug is a lovely example of a decorative piece that is very eye-catching because of this exact contrast.
