A new week for a new DIY! For this weeks DIY I will continue the plant pots! We will make a Senecio rowleyanus plant! I always loved these succulents, but I thought I never would own a real one. Never saw one in our stores.. until, some time ago! I bought a tiny plant, it will grow bigger soon I hope! haha I just love these! Anyway I wanted to crochet one as well so here we go!
For this DIY you’ll need.
♥ Wool, in Green and Brown.
♥ Crochet hook.
♥ Stitch marker.
♥ Yarn needle.
♥ Toilet roll tube. (optional)
CH = Chain.
SC = Single Crochet.
ST = Stitch.
Inc = Increase.
Dec = Decrease.
Slst = Slip Stitch.
(…) = Repeat the space in brackets the given number of times.
[…] = Total number of stitches.
1: 1: 6SC in magic ring. 
2: SC in each ST around. 
3: (1SC, inc), 6 times. 
4: (2SC, inc), 6 times. 
5: SC in each st around. 
Fasten off and leave long tail for sewing.
Senecio rowleyanus small chain: (5)
1: Chain 20
2: Insert hook in 2nd chain, 4SC, insert hook in 1st ST. 
3: Inc in each ST around. 
4: SC in each ST around. 
5: Dec all around. 
Fasten Off and weave in tail. Now, repeat row 2-5, two more times. Space them evenly on the chain. I did them in about every 5th chain. You will end up with 3 balls/leaves on the chain.
To make different lengths of the leave chains. I have used a count of 25CH and 35CH. For the 25CH I have 4 balls/leaves, make these 4 times. For the 35CH I have 6 balls/leaves, make these 3 times.
Cut down your toilet roll tube to about 4 cm long, and place this inside you plant pot. I did this, so the pot will keep it’s shape. This is optional, you don’t have to do it.
Sew all of the Leave chains one by one to the soil/ground. I spaced them kinda evenly in the middle, but you can do it however you like them best.
Now sew in your soil/ground just above the toilet roll tube, or if you didn’t use it, just a bit under the edge of the pot. Make Sure to stuff the pot lightly before you entirly closed it with the soil/ground.
And you are done with your adorable plant pot with plant. Next week I will teach you how to make another plant, the last one. After we are done with the plant pots I will come up with something new! ^-^ And don’t forget to share your Senecio rowleyanus plant with the #DelinleaDIY
Have a nice day everyone!
