So I got out my trusty hook and set to work. In the space of an hour I whipped up two nifty covers to cover the ugly containers. So easy.
Here is the pattern for you:
Crocheted Pot plant covers
Ch 50. Join to a circle and then start immediately with a double crochet stitch into each chain stitch.
(To measure how big your circle must be, simply chain as many stitches you need by measuring as you go along-the chain length should curl around the base of your container-rather have it touching with a stretch than make it too loose, as the work gets looser as you carry on).
I did 10 rows of double crochet (but "try on" your cover to your container as you go along to see when you need to stop). Remember with each row -when you get to the end, you need to ch 1, turn and then carry on with the double crochet along the next row.
Edging: For the last row I did a scalloped edge. So first ch1, turn, then
3 double crochet into the first st, then slip stitch, then another slip stitch and then chain 2 into same space and then 2x double crochet.
slip st, slip st, ch2, 2xdouble crochet (the ch2 serves as the first double crochet st)
and so on and so on until you reach the end. You should end with a slip st and then end off like you normally do.
What a treat the new Country living magazine is! (April)The following images are from it.
Love the bright colors!
I love a whole wall dedicated to frames/photos!I also love those bird cushions!
Love the splash back and little sign!
I am not crazy about red, but I love the writing on the couch!
Gorgeous little fabric covered notebooks.
Love the bright and cheerful colors of this room. And those wooden beams exposed. And of course the cute chicken cushion!
I am still trying to figure out why I like the bottom picture. As I am not crazy about red and to me, the the room is too busy and too floral-but I think it is the white, the freshness and that white wooden floor.
