Amigurumi Cactus

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
