Make these lovely crocheted pot cozies yourself. This one is made for a pot sized 10 cm (bottom) to 14 cm (top). Just adjust the amount of stitches according to the pot you are using. This may seem hard, but it's easy if you fit the cozy as you go along so you will see where to increase.

Start with a chain (I used 30) and close to a ring.

1: DC in the ring (as many as needed to create a flat circle)
2: DC, increase each 5 of 6 stitches (repeat this row if necessary and increase each 7 or 8 stitches)
3: SC (or DC if necessary to reach the size of the base of the pot) in each stitch and increase 5 stitches divided over this row
4: DC in the back loops of each stitched of the last row
5 - 7: DC in each stitc
8: Change color and SC in each stitch
9-10: Change back to base color and DC in each stitch

Repeat row 8 - 10 five times total (or as many as you like) until you reach the heigh of the pot. To widen to the top you will increase a few of the rows by increasing 3 stitches evenly divided per row. I increases two rows at bout 2/3 of the height of the pot with about 5 rows in between.

Edging of the pot:

1: SC in the back loops of the last row and decrease about evert 5 stitches
2: SC in each stitc and decrease about every 8 to 10 stitches

wow! So simple, why did I never think of this? Do you have plant pots without holey bottoms? (ooh - sounds wrong!) Was just wondering if all your hard work would go squidgy?

 Mine have irrigation holes at the bottom, but I suppose I could just do one for the sides? hmm *wanders off to look at plant pots...*

You're about as useful as a one-legged man at an arse kicking contest

The colors you chose work perfectly. I bet it would look spiffy with a plant in it. But I would worry about getting the cozy dirty. Did you use a special kind of yarn? I agree with RC. This project makes me want to crochet the whole world.
