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 one!
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!
You will need:
10mm crochet hook
needle (for sewing in ends – or just tuck them inside)
1/2 ball or each Cygnet Seriously chunky in Slate Grey and Cream.
A tuna tin/ can (washed and dried)
A 10cm plant pot.
