I LOVE this cactus for a few reasons. The pattern was so easy to follow, it took no time at all to finish, and it’s so cute!
I purchased the pattern on Etsy from “Jayda In Stitches”. The pattern was super easy to follow! Once I purchased the pattern it was ready to download right away and Jayda kindly messaged me to let me know she was available to answer any questions. (Thanks Jayda!)
I used a 3.5mm hook, 8mm safety eyes, some polybeads/stuffing, and a some red embroidery floss for the mouth. I used regular “Vanna’s Choice” yarn for the cactus but chose to use a “kitchen cotton” yarn for the base of the cactus (the pot.) I like the texture and colour of the kitchen cotton yarn. It worked well for the pot because it’s a little sturdier and has more of a matte finish like a real terracotta pot!
Happy Crochet’ing! xo
