Start with the base. You can make the “pot” any colour you want.

Make a magic ring.  

Round 1: Ch 1, 8 dc into magic ring and pull tight to close, join to first dc. (d dc)

Round 6 – 10: Ch 1, dc in each st around, join to the first dc. (32 dc) Cut yarn, weave in ends. 

Next is the top of the pot. You can make this soil or moss coloured as this is what you will be sewing the leaves into

Begin to sew the leaves on to the base beginning with the large, then medium, then, small. Fasten off and cut.

Step 3

To Sew the two pieces together cut a long piece of the base pot colour.

Step 4

Using a running stitch sew the two pieces together. Leave a gap and stuff with toy stuffing. You can also add lavender in at this stage.

Step 5

To make the 3 hangers. Attach base colour to the pot and ch20. Cut cotton leaving a 10″ strand
Count 10 stitches to the right and repeat.
Count 10 stitches again and do final strand

Step 6

Grab those strands and do a simple knot through the ring. Make sure the strands are the same length.

Step 7

Cut a piece of cotton around 1m long. Insert into needle and wrap around the ring making sure it is fully covered.

Step 8

Wrap cotton around the base of the ring going down then up 1″. Insert needle under loops and bring it out the other end. Tighten and cut.
