OK…… so this is something I’ve been wanting to make for a while, so I thought on this very dull, cold and rainy morning in August that I’d finally spend a bit of time making a crochet plant pot cover.
This is a super quick and easy make, using singles and Half Double crochet to give a nice close texture – this is a super quick to make – and a perfect beginners project.
I have my own succulent that lives next to the computer and its thriving! The star of many an Instagram picture!
The blue one bought a succulent (I’ve no idea whats it is), and its been since forgotten about by him and me – apart from the odd water! It’s lived in the utility room, on the draining board for a good few months, unloved.
I was starting to feel sorry for it. It’s just in its original pot, stuffed in an old can so it doesn’t leak everywhere!
So queue a super chunky make!
