Crocheted Plants!

The long term care unit at my local hospital is having a plant sale to raise money for their resident activity fund, so I made some crochet plants for those who have enough real plants (or have trouble keeping them alive!).


(Iโ€™m also giving them a couple baby african violets. :slight_smile:)

Patterns used: Spiral Cactus (Ravelry link), Succulent

I used an F hook (3.75 mm) for both patterns. The green yarn is Lion Brand Pound of Love in Olive, and the red, pink, and brown are vintage acrylic yarns. Theyโ€™re all stuffed with polyester fiberfill and the succulents have cardboard circles in the bottoms of the pots to keep them flat.

I enjoyed making these! The succulents were slightly more fun - they worked up quickly and I like the way the leaves are made. :grin:

Hopefully someone will like them!

They look great, and this is such an amazing and sweet thing for you to do. As someone without a green thumb, I think this is a great way to let those people contribute, too!

I thought these pretty little things were REAL plants when I saw the preview. They will surely make any room a warmer, cheerier place. :heart:

What an awesome idea! I especially like the one that twists. How did you find out about the plant sale? I would love to donate a bunch of my plants to somewhere here. I have too many that I feel โ€œmehโ€ about. I want to feel excited about my plants!

Thanks! Someone made a post about the sale in our local plant swap & sales facebook group.

Maybe nursing homes / assisted living facilities could use plants? Long term care at the hospital usually has windowsills covered with plants when they share pictures. :grin: Others usually have small gardens, but Iโ€™m not sure about inside plants.

These are fabulous! I especially like the spiral cacti. And, what a great idea to donate them to the plant sale for people who donโ€™t want to take care of a living plant!
