Crochet Plant Pot Cover Elevating home decor to another level…literally
I do like winter. But somehow the winter here in UK is so very different to the winter I know from home.
Everything gets covered in snow back home. The crisp white mornings when the sun shines across the blue skies and bounces off the pure white snow has its magic.
The blinding brightness sparkling with thousands of tiny diamonds sprinkled across vast fields. You take a deep breath in and feel the cold air right down in your lungs and it refreshes you.
That’s the winter I know…
Here in UK, everything stays pretty green all year round. Hence why I feel inspired to grow my plant collection.
I am really falling in love with the year round green plants. A tall orchid is proudly perched in the window showing off the delicate dusk pink flowers.
This has inspired me to elevate some plant pots and really create three dimensional display.
Excited with this vision, I grabbed my crochet hook. I made this crochet plant pot cover in less than an hour. That’s why I am planning on making many more crochet pot covers I can hang in the front window.

How to crochet plant pot cover
This crochet plant pot cosy is a stash busting project. I used a ball of King Cole Cottonsoft DK in Pure White I had leftover from another project.
You can use any strong yarn that will be able to take the weight of a flower pot. This is most likely going to be cotton yarn.
You can get creative and use all different colours too. Do you remember all the rainbows we made to display in the windows?
I made my crochet pot cover with 4 strands that I can tie into a knot and hang it up in the window. You can by all means skip the last step and just make the flower pot cosy to decorate your plant pots.

I looked out the front window surrounded by my plant babies tightly hugged in their crochet plant pot covers. A few perfectly formed white snowflakes were dancing through the air.
I caught a glimpse of the diamond spark in the air as one landed on the ground. “It’s snowing!” I whispered.
