Crochet Cactus Amigurumi
Crochet Cactus Amigurumi

Crochet cacti and succulents are the latest trend. After all, who wouldn't want to have their own cuddly cactus that you absolutely never have to water? 

This easy crochet cactus can be yours in a hurry! The cactus pattern is worked flat in rows. Once you make two of them, you just sew them together with a little bit of polyfil and you're good to go! The terracotta pot is made the same way, so once you've gotten the hang of it, you'll be zooming through the pattern. Don't forget to add a keyring to the top of your pattern so you can attach it to your bag or keys and carry it anywhere.

How cute is this cactus keyring. It's super easy to follow this pattern and I love the additional video incase you haven't mastered reading patterns yet. It makes the cutest gift item to make last minute because it uses very little yarn, it won't cost you alot incase you already have this yarn.
