This pattern is available from for $8.50.

A crocheted cactus never needs watering, never dies, and is always in peak condition. With this collection, you can make 4 different realistic cacti in individual pots, or a beautiful cactus garden arranged in one large crocheted pot. It’s the perfect thing to brighten up your window, or to give as an unusual and thoughtful gift.

Cactus Collection 2 is an original crochet pattern by June Gilbank, including patterns for 4 different cacti: Micranthocereus, Cephalocereus, Ferocactus (Barrel Cactus), and Opuntia (Paddle Cactus).

It also includes full patterns and assembly instructions for both the individual-sized pot pattern and the larger cactus garden pot pattern:

  • An individual cactus makes a quick and sweet gift - or you can anthropomorphize it with some eyes and a smiley mouth to make a super-cute version!
  • Two or three (or more) individual cactus pots look great arranged in a line along your windowsill.
  • The larger cactus garden makes a beautiful decoration - and you’ll never have that problem where one of the collection dies and you’re left with a big empty space in the pot!

Details: pattern is 13 pages long and includes over 30 step-by-step photographs and explanations so you can crochet perfect cacti of your own.

Yarn: worsted weight yarn in at least one shade of green (cacti), any floral colour (flowers), brown (soil), and any colour you like for the pot.

Hook: US E / 3.5mm

Individual cacti are approx 3” wide by 4.5-6.5” tall (including pot)
Cactus garden is approx 5.5” wide by 6.5” tall (including pot)

You can mix and match cacti to create your own perfect cacti garden - and take advantage of the huge savings when you buy Cactus Collections 1 & 2 together!
