Succulents Set Free Crochet Pattern

Updated: Oct 19, 2019



Let's face it, not everyone is born with a green thumb, and if you've always had hard times in seeing plants bloom in your house/garden, this post can come in your help!


Crocheted succulents are fun to make, they do not need any maintenance and, above all, they are extremely cute!


This set can be a fun decor for your work desk at the office, your kitchen window sill or a bookcase shelf.


The mini clay pots bring an earthy and rustic feeling to your house and match so well with the deep shade of green of the plants.


How would you like crocheting these cuties together?


Here is the free pattern for my Succulent Set:
