needles: size 5 for cactus, size 2 for flower
duration: about half a day of knitting (February 12, 2012)

  • 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.
