Knitted Cactus Garden
This pattern includes full instructions for knitting three different cacti as well as "sandy soil," and assembling them in 5" pot to make a charming cactus garden about 7" tall.
You'll need size 9 circular or set of double-pointed needles. Yarn requirements are partial skeins of three colors of green worsted yarn, one variegated beige/tan yarn, and a bit of brightly colored yarn for a small flower. A pot, Styrofoam, fiberfill, and simple everyday needlecrafting tools complete the list.
Detailed instructions, photos and diagrams are provided for every step of the process.
