project details

pattern: based on Allison Krones's "Knit Cactus" pattern, available for free at http://daybydaywithme.blogspot.com/2011/01/knit-cactus.html, flower pattern adapted from the flowers on the Head Huggers earband by MK Carroll in Stitch 'n Bitch Nation.

notes
  • CO 48 stitches, proceed in k1p2 ribbing for about 3'', then decrease according to Krones's pattern.
  • I skipped the step of gluing the cactus into the pot - it's just hanging out in there for now.
