The calendar says March, spring should have sprung….not quite where I live and probably not where you live either. It seems as though Mother Nature is confused as to the seasons. Here in Buffalo, New York, we’re a balmy 28 degrees…insert eye roll! I don’t like extreme heat either so I’d be happy with 60 degrees but its a few weeks, cough, months away for us here. But as we get into March and April, the items in the stores become more colorful, tulips, and daffodils are now options for fresh cut flowers, which makes me want to brighten up inside too.
When we moved last December into the new house my beloved houseplants all died from the extreme cold, my father and husband put them in the bed of the truck instead of the warm interior of the truck. It was so traumatizing that it took a whole year for me to begin to replace my plants. As I did though the containers were pretty blah, you know the typical black container that the plants come in. Its not quite warm enough for places to be selling containers yet, so I was stuck with these boring containers. So I design….
I took some unused T-shirt yarn that I had been trying to sell and my M hook and designed a little plant sweater. I thought it was so cute that I decided I would make a medium sized one and a large one too. Aren’t they just the cutest things?
I have published this pattern, if you think your plants need some loving too! These little sweater baskets are sure to brighten up any space. You can find the pattern on Ravelry, Craftsy, Etsy, and coming soon to Love-knitting. If you aren’t a crocheter and want a sweater for your plants, I’d love to make you one! Send me a message or head on over to Etsy. I do plan on designing a few more of these but I have a baby blanket coming up next! Thank you all for your continued support.
