So I will admit it, I really like crocheting. I like the simplicity that it can be and I like doing little projects. I am often the nerd sitting at home on any given night watching old episodes of The Wire and crocheting like mad. I love it. I recently started crocheting these cute little cacti and I cannot stop. I have been collecting small pots for a while now and have never really done anything with them. When I saw crocheted cacti in a store one day, I finally found a use for them. My idea was to make some that looked like the real thing and then to have them displayed on a shelf with actual live cacti. How fun is that?!
I searched for patterns everywhere on the internet for good, realistic looking succulents. The best that I found was on Planet June and you can find the patterns that I ended up with here. I have quickly made enough to fill all of my fancy pots at home. Since I just can’t stop making them, I bought some little terra cotta pots and have been whipping up more of these guys that I know are going to be great gifts for some special people.
