    • Mod Green for Aloe Vera
    • Dark Pine and Hot Green for Snake Plant
    • Teal for Succulent
  • Size U.S. G/6 (4 mm) crochet hook
  • 31/8″ [8 cm] or 37/8″ [10 cm] plant pot
  • Stuffing

Detailed Instructions

1. Soil

The first step is to create the soil base for your plants. You’ll be working in rounds, and your stitches will vary from single crochets (sc) to slip stitches (sl st), depending on the round. Remember to check your stitch count after each round to ensure your soil base is correct.


2. Aloe Vera

The Aloe Vera plant is created in triangles, which then form the plant’s spikes. For this part of the project, you’ll be working in rows rather than rounds, using various stitches from single crochets (sc) to treble crochets (tr). Once your triangles are complete, sew the foundation chain and the last row together to form the spikes. Sew these to the soil base.

3. Snake Plant

Similar to the Aloe Vera, the Snake Plant is also created in segments. But here, you’ll make separate leaves, which will then be combined to form the plant. Don’t forget to insert a craft wire through the center of each leaf before attaching them to the soil base.

4. Succulent

Finally, for the Succulent, chain 73 and follow the detailed instructions to create the leaves. Once all the leaves are complete, coil the work into a spiral and sew it onto the soil base.
