From the designer: Having falling in love with urban knitting, I wanted to follow up my International Yarn Bombing 2011 day adventure with something Derek and I could collaborate on. He likes to grow things and I like to knit. Bring these two things together and we came up with the idea of plant pockets. We’ve created a dozen and deployed the first two last weekend while walking down to the Mission.
Pockets can be easily customized. Instructions given provide an option of stockinette or basketweave stitch for the main pocket.
Plants chosen were succulents, selected for their hardy nature.
The pocket is filled with soil, then, using braided self-ties, attached to a lonely fence or dull area in the neighborhood.
