Gotta love a plant that needs zero attention once it's potted up.





The local yarn shops didn't have any of the white yarn in the following links, I need to find some because does it ever look realistic!

I took a look at some real cacti and succulents along with a few yarn versions and figured out patterns on my own. I will try to write out a few how-to's if anybody's interested?

Love it!
I have 2 small planters that used to hold succulents (did I mention my black thumb?!?) and they are just dying to have something like this made for them!!!
I would love for this to be a crochet a long where we all make cacti, succulents, etc... or even maybe a swap???  I've had too much coffee this morning, can you tell!!

These are excellent! You really captured the organic shapes perfectly. Now you don't have to water! But still have to dust... Cheesy Lovely work!

Wonderful job on your not-so-prickly cacti!  I like the rotund one with the flower on top the best out of the group (my Mother had a real one almost exactly like that when I was a kid).

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
