Potted Saguaro Cactus
"How to crochet an adorable modern Saguaro Cactus in a little Terracotta pot. Easy to customize too! You'll need a small amount of Worsted Weight Yarn - I used Red Heart Super Saver in Coffee and Light Sage, but Caron One Pound and Bernat Super Value are good alternatives. You'll also need a 2.5” Terracotta Pot, and some stuffing. If you want to make a flower for your cactus, you'll need a 2.35mm hook and #10 crochet thread. I had my cactus ready in about an hour."
