This week I made some changes to my first cactus by adding more rows of the white plastic yarn, which gives it a cooler texture. What do you think?
Then I couldn’t resist making two more companions, since one is a lonely number and cactus plants come in such an intriguing array of shapes. The saguaro has tiny flowers crocheted from white thread, and the star cactus has a huge pompom “flower” made from Daiso red cotton and orange plastic yarn combined.
The substrate on all is the Schoeller & Stahl “Limone” cotton in color #49, and the green is Phildar Coton 3 in color #1173. I kept stitches tight with hooks at 3.00 and 2.25mm. Lastly, the little pots came from Daiso, too – everyone’s favorite “dollar store” in Korea.
