Who isn’t in love with tiny succulents lately? I bet everyone you stumble across in any social media does. Well, this time I decided to crochet one because I decided to make something else once in awhile instead just toys. This won’t exactly be a tutorial but I will give you a detail, or rather, run down of the process. Let’s start with the larger pot.
Now I have been crocheting for a little over a year, so I wanted a little more challenge – which is why I’ve tried mixing different technique and methods. The pots, first of all were made of natural ingredients based air dry clay (I used fimo brand), cut round with a cutter then bent to form a bowl, dried for 48 hours and sanded. The yarns I used for the big cactus are regular sized (for 3 mm needle) yarns and regular sized eyelash mohair yarn to give the prickly effect. I crochet three yarns at once instead of one with a 5 mm needle. That said, there is nothing special about the pattern since I basically blind crochet both of the cactus. The flower on top is a simple pattern very similar to the one I have written before for the crystal doily tutorial here.
