This little project is one I made for my sister for a birthday present.
I started with a small glass vase, measuring approximately 11.5cm diameter by 12.5cm high, and an orchid I picked up from the market.
Using the basic basket pattern, I crocheted a basket with 30 stitches per round. I used 2 strands together of 8 ply acrylic yarn and a 10mm hook. I chose mint at the main colour, and topped it off with 3 rounds of cream.
Then it’s as simple as planting the orchid in the vase, popping on the crochet cover, and you have yourself a lovely indoor plant!
