The tag said to "protect from frost," so I thought they could use sweaters for the winter while they're dormant.  I designed this pattern to fit most 4-inch plastic pots.  It's also a great excuse not to buy an expensive pot.







These are stacked 4-inch square pots:


Here's the pattern....
H-Hook
Medium Worsted Weight Acrylic Yarn

Abbreviations:
BPDC = Back Post Double Crochet
CH = Chain Stitch
FPDC = Front Post Double Crochet
HDC = Half Double Crochet
SC = Single Crochet
SL ST = Slip Stitch

NOTE:  Join each round with a SL ST

CH32, SL ST in first CH
Rounds1-2: CH2 (counts as one HDC), HDC around (32)
Round3: CH3 (counts as one DC), DC around (32)
Round4: CH1 (doesn't count as stitch), (BPDC in next 2, FPDC in next 2)8 times
Round5-?: Repeat Round 4 until desired height
Fringe(optional): (CH5, insert hook behind next 2 posts from previous round and SL ST) 16 times
Fasten off and weave ends in

I like those! Do they actually keep the soil warmer? It gets extra drafty in my house and I could use something like that to keep my plants healthy. Thanks for the pattern!

Thank you very much, everyone.

Technicolor... To be honest, I'm not sure if they literally keep the plants warm

These are such a smart idea.  They look great as well, if I had plants I'd make some.
