A collection of knitted cactus and a knitted plant pot/bowl tutorial

On Tuesday I mentioned that I’d stayed with Lovely Littlest when I visited Unravel. Lovely Littlest has only just moved into a new flat, so I wanted to take her a flat warming present. The obvious choice, of course, was a knitted cactus collection. Well, actually it wasn’t. I was going to make a smaller plant, but got carried away knitting the pot. It turned out big enough to wear as a hat…

bowl-hat It would probably have been quicker to start again, but now I’d made it, I decided it would look nice filled with a few cacti.

Knitted Santa Sacks: Free knitting patterns for advent – day 21

Still running a day behind – I confess this is because I went to the pub last night. That’s also the reason the fair isle is a little uneven in the centre – I knitted it magic loop when I got back from the pub, where I may have had a few glasses of wine, and forgot to make sure the floats were loose enough between the two sets of stitches on the needles!
