Caring for plants is not as easy as it seems. For starters, you have to determine the amount of light and water that they need. More importantly, you have to know how often you should expose them to these elements. All these can be overwhelming for anyone without a green thumb. Luckily, you can get yourself a crochet pattern that allows you to handcraft your dream houseplant instead.
From monstera, dragon scale, begonia, and more, Etsy store PippaPatternsCrochet offers a variety of patterns to help you create your eternal plant.
These crochet houseplants are perfect for plant lovers who don’t have a green thumb
Each design comes in a PDF file and includes step-by-step instructions to guide you along the process. It also features over 100 high resolution images that you can use as reference. Given the complexity of the designs, do note that this project is suitable for crocheters with intermediate to advanced skills.
Using the recommended materials and sticking to the tutorial, you should have a life-size houseplant as your finished product. Just like real plants, you can also place these faux plants in a pot for decorative purposes. And the best part? They don’t require any watering at all! Plus, you can be sure that they will stay green forever and will never die on you.
Apparently, the ephemeral nature of most plants inspired store owner Connie Rockliff to come up with one that will last forever.
“My inspiration started with my love of flowers and plants and how sad it is that they have to die so I decided to make a variety that doesn’t die.”
In addition to popular foliage plants, she also offers patterns for making flowering plants like roses, daisies, tulips, and more. Feel free to visit her Etsy store to see her entire product catalogue. While you’re at it, check out our previous post on these adorable faux succulents as well!
