In today’s world, Cacti & succulents are considered very trendy indoor decor. Crochet Cacti & Succulents give any space natural beauty; whether a small one in a little pot on a desk, a large one for a corner cabinet, or a whole garden for a showy display. Think gift-giving, for special friends, favourite teachers, loved ones in care or hospital…
The Crochet Cactus Garden is ideal for those who love indoor plants but, for whatever reason, don’t want to deal with the care & maintenance or have small kiddies & pets who like to touch & poke things they shouldn’t.
One of my crochet class groups encouraged me to come up with some basic crochet cactus patterns; ones they could play with to create their own indoor gardens,… stress free gardening if you like.
I came up with these 7, easy, yet interesting, basic cactus crochet patterns, each different from the other leaving lots of room for creativity. The patterns are mostly worked in dc (US: sc) in the Amigurumi Technique.
Patterns are in written form with both UK & US terminology
I encourage you to experiment with different yarns from cotton to sock yarn, acrylics to natural fibres, all give unique effects.
Tip: remember plants in nature aren’t always perfect, so don’t stress about any imperfections they only add to the charm.
I hope you have fun & enjoy creating a cactus garden for yourself or the special people in your life.
