Crochet you very own hanging String of Pearls (Senecio Rowleyanus) succulent plant. Brighten up a drab corner of your room or office, or make a quick, easy housewarming gift for a friend. If you like, you can create a clustered arrangement by combining the String of Pearls with other crocheted plant patterns such as my Hen & Chicks pattern. The finished length seen here is 18 inches/46 cm, but you can crochet the vines any length and quantity you desire.

This crocheted pot is designed to be the size, shape, and color as a real terracotta pot. The finished pot height is 2.75 inches/7 cm. I designed the soil base to be removable--like a chocolate cupcake--rather than a circle sewn to the top of the pot. This soil insert gives the pot firm, straight sides and a flat base rather than bulging. If you prefer to house your crocheted plant in a clay pot, use my pattern to crochet a soil base to fit inside a standard 3” inch pot. If you want to crochet different colored pots, you can pull the crocheted plant and soil out of the pot and transplant it into a new crocheted pot!

  1. Pot, 2.75”/7 cm
  2. Soil Base, 2.5”/6 cm
  3. String of Pearls Vines, from 5-11 inches/12-28 cm
