The perfect house warming or geek freak knit….an oozing zombie pot plant!

Simply pop this lovely into a plant pot about 3-4 inches high for an unforgetable gift or conversation piece. Alternatively, if you want to knit a cute posy, simply omit the bleeding leaf stumps and chose far more cheerful colors!

N.B. The ButterflyLove lawyers have asked us to point out that ‘pot plant’ is an English expression, which refers to a potted plant. This pattern does not contain instructions for the creation of knitted soft drugs. Sorry.

The ButterflyLove zombie pot plant pdf knitting pattern gives you clear step by step instructions to knit a plant approximately 6 inches tall (including soil bulb). This pattern is suitable for an intermediate knitter and is knitted flat. It’s a substantial project so allow up to a week to knit this up and finish it.
