Let’s face it, just because you love plants, doesn’t automatically mean you have the greenest thumb on the planet…If you or someone you know keeps buying plants just to watch them slowly die on a shelf (like me…) then this is the perfect in-good-humor thing to stitch up!

The Plant Purgatory Wall Hanging is the perfect thing to stitch up for you or a friend who loves plant more than plants love them. Get the graph version of the crochet pattern free here:

Pattern Notes:
Turning ch does not count as first stitch unless otherwise noted
Piece is worked from the bottom up, beginning with the graph section, the bottom border is added separately.
Ch 43, begin graph in second ch from hook
It is recommended to work RS rows in the back loop and WS rows in the front loop, this will help your letters line up better
