Crochet Flower Pot

When I posted my "Here Comes the Sun" project yesterday, I realized I completely forgot to post about the crocheted flower pot cover! Tsk tsk. 

The pattern is so simple! Just chain until you can wrap the piece around your pot ( I used a plain terracotta pot) and join to create a huge ring. Single crochet in each stitch around changing colors every 2 rows. Be sure to increase evenly every other row if your pot gets wider at the top like mine. I used lily sugar n cream cotton and I added a simple shell border on the top ( 5dc in one stitch, skip 1 st, sc in next st, skip 1 st, 5dc in next stitch, repeat).

I can't wait to make some more for the summer!


  1. Beautiful....lovely and bright....just right now Spring is here and also the sun!
    Makes it look a very happy pot

  2. So cue. I have been seeing this on all of my favorite crochet blogs, but have not made one yet. Perhaps this week! Sure does add charm!
    Have a happy day!!

  3. So much prettier than an orangey-coloured terracotta pot!

  4. That is adorable and so colorful!

  5. How pretty and creative. I crochet too, but wouldn't have thought to cover a flower pot. Then again, I am deep into this afghan project I started about 2 years ago. Picked it up a few months ago and swore I would not crochet anything else until it's done. I'm down to crocheting 2 more colors of squares. Maybe there is light at the end of tunnel!

    I love your blog and am your newest follower. I'll come back to see some of your new designs soon.

  6. Your instructions make this seem so easy. I think I will try it. I love the scallops and the bright cheery stripes. I may try to cover a little tin can to hold my pens and pencils.

  7. Followed your pattern today. Super easy! Thanks!!

  8. I love this flowerpot cover so much! I'd love to have it be the crochet-along project we make on my blog for May if that's ok :)
