This fun little project is a wonderful way to add a little cheer to your home, office, or home office. They would also make great gifts!

The pattern includes directions for three little houseplants- aloe, succulent, and spider plant. They are made to fit 2.5” diameter pots with holes in the bottoms.

The aloe and succulent leaves are worked in the round and sewn together. The spider plant is worked flat in one piece casting on and binding off stitches and using short rows to form the leaves.

For the Aloe and Succulent plants, a piece
of yarn and a button are used to secure the plant into the pot holding it in place. The Spider Plant is simply set in a pot with its leaves draped over the sides.

The finishing directions for each plant include step-by-step photos.
