I'm sorry for be too late, but here is the pattern:
- Crochet hook
- Stitch marker
- Something to put inside the cactus (fill up(?))
1- Sc 6 rows
2- 2Sc in each St for 5 next stitches, Sc next 15 St
3- 2Sc in each St for next 10 st, sc next 15 st.
4- Sc 1 row
5- Sc next 5 St and put a stitch marker in this stitch, Sc 10 St and go to the stitch marker to make a little tube, like this:
(take of the stitch marker)
6- In the little tube Sc 4 rows
7- Sc 2, sc2tog for 1 row
8- Sc1, Sc2tog for 1 row
9- Close the branch, so you'll have:
10- Make this at the end of the branch, where it joins with the other tube and Sc 2:
11- Continue making the tube until your desire lenght.
12- Sc 3, Sc2tog for 1 row
13- Sc2, Sc2tog for 1 row
14- Sc1, Sc2tog for 1 row
15- Finish and close.
Now, you've got the cactus, fill it with cotton or something like this and turn to the hole:
Start crocheting to close it:
1- Sc 1 row
2- Sc2tog to the end and close
And that's it
. I have to say that if the cactus doesn't stay up, you can sew in the finish so the base will be strong.
I added eyes and mouth
If you don't understand the pattern, please say to me and I'll help you.
I hope all is correct, that's my first crochet pattern.
