The irony of succulent plants is that they grow and are native of the desert like this bishop cactus that grows mostly in the plateaus of Central and Northern Mexico. This plant has an enticing look that would be perfect by the window, or in the corner of your room and or office. It’s easy and fun to make too.

The pattern starts with an ordinary circle, making the stitches tight to not show the filling.

You will however need copper wire of 26 gauge,and prepare for 3 skeins of green twist yarn Lily Sugar and Cream. The pattern has a video to aid you make the flower with wire.
