My office in our new building is nice and big, but it’s got no windows and is very bare since we have to provide our own decor. It needs something green, and since I can’t really grow real plants in there, I had to make my own!
I’m really happy with all of them! The agave took the longest and was hardest on my hands, but even so I can’t pick a favorite!
I talked about the barrel cactus in my last post. The agave & saguaro were also made with worsted yarn and a size E hook. The free pattern for the agave can be found here and the free pattern for the saguaro can be found here. I made some alterations though — with the agave plant I made 5 of the medium leaves, 3 of the small leaves, and then I made 3 even smaller leaves that aren’t included in the free pattern but follow the same easy premise.
I also made the saguaro a little taller so that I could bury a good bit of it under the rocks to stabilize it.
These are just so cute, I’m so happy with them. I might have to go back to the store and get a couple more pots and try a couple of other types of cacti!
Well that’s all for today, thanks for stopping by!
