Soft Spikes

It was a friend of mine’s birthday not long ago, and I decided to make her a little crochet cactus for a birthday gift.


These French knots are cactus flowers, which I think look adorable on real-life cacti.


The pot is stuffed, and I put a circle of cardboard in the base to help it stand upright.



Yeah, Sarah, this succulent is a little large for your living room, I’m sorry. It’s probably quite heavy, too. “It is!  Ughhh.” *rapid footsteps, followed by a sigh of relief*

My friend loved her gift, so much that she named it Steve. (I’m all for naming inanimate objects, especially plants.)

Anyways, see ya!

  1. That cactus is the cutest thing, it has to be a lot of fun to hug, definitely more than the real thing! I’ve never gotten the hang of French knots, but they look so nice as little flowers. Maybe Sarah needs a little cactus or succulent for her room…I wonder how one would go about making a miniature succulent! And Steve is the perfect name for a plant, I name pretty much everything I own too. 😀


      1. Those are so cute! I’m not surprised you already made her some, they look perfect on Sarah’s bookshelves! ^_^


  2. These are SO cute! Do you mind if I try to make these? I think they would look cute somewhere in my barn 🙂
