I’m so excited to release my free pattern for C2C Crochet Cactus Pot Holder. This is the first my C2C Crochet Cactus Series that I will be releasing. I’m in love with all things crochet and cactus and this pattern combines both. I have been redesigning my home and I’m using cactus and succulents as a theme. It all started with a few succulents plants on the kitchen window and my love blossomed with all things succulent and cactus.
Using C2C graphing this little square works up quickly and you can change colors to you’re desire. I like using household twine in my pot holders as they give a slight firmness that holds up cotton yarn. Cotton yarn is recommended to use when making pot holders because acrylic yarn will melt. In C2C Crochet Cactus Pot Holder the graph is the front square and the back is a square made of simple double crochet rows in twine. The two squares are then assembled together by single crocheting around. To add some texture I added a crab stitch or reverse single crochet around border. Adding a flower is an addition that give a little pop of color.
If you’re new to C2C graph crocheting than this an easy pattern that can be worked up. If you love cactuses or know someone that does than this is a pattern you’ll want to make. I love seeing my C2C Crochet Cactus Pot Holder in my kitchen. Using my Free pattern for Crocheted Cast Iron Handle Cover you can make a handle cover to match your C2C Crochet Cactus Pot Holder.
