Knitting Notes:

  • Technically this pattern only has 2 different rows, so don’t be scared it’s a pretty easy pattern.
  • To make it larger or smaller CO in multiples of 4.
  • I CO tightly using the long tail CO method.
  • I knit this a little on the tight side, I usually knit a little on the loose side.
  • I slipped the 2 stitches at once to create a tighter stitch.
  • A common mistake I made was knitting 2 together when I was supposed to be slipping 2 STS :(
  • This is an unforgiving stitch. When you make a mistake, it’s noticeable and the only way to fix it is to tink back or frog. :( Don’t despair! It’s sooo pretty when it’s finished! It’s worth it! :)

Comparing Cotton Yarn:

For my plant cozy I’m using Simply Cotton by Knit Picks, but I think you can use the Sugar N Cream brand interchangeably, which is usually pretty easy to get your hands on if you have a LYS, Hobby Lobby, Michael’s or even Walmart :)

How I Transplanted my Jade Plant


How I Transplanted my Jade Plant:

My Jade Plant is a little overgrown for it’s pot and it’s getting taller than I’d like, it’s about 14″ tall. I prefer to keep my succulents on the small side. So I’m trimming my “large” jade plant and transplanting it to my glass jar. Here’s what I did:

  • 1. Clean glass container
  • 2. Put rocks on the bottom, or something else for drainage.
  • 3. Add soil mixture, less 1″ from the top.
  • 4. Add plant(s). I cut my Jade plants along the stem and removed a few leaves before sticking them in the soil.
  • 5. Add more soil to about 1/2″-1/4″ from top, pressing firmly. Leave enough room from the top so you can water it without the water spilling over the side and ruining your knitted plant cozy.
  • 6. Water
  • 7. Wipe dirt from glass.
  • 8. Put cozy on from the bottom up. {An extra set of hands makes this much easier!}

Planting Notes:

  • I got my glass jar at Dollar General for $3.50. I found it near the candles at me local DG. I chose it because it has straight sides, unlike a planter that tapers at the bottom. This makes knitting it easier so I don’t have to increase or decrease stitches to keep it tight against the container.
  • This method works nicely for succulents.
  • You’ll need to put a layer of rocks, seashells, marbles or something at the bottom for drainage.
  • Make sure your soil is slightly sandy.
  • I mixed equal parts of potting soil with sand. You could purchase a specific succulent soil.
  • If you can find a watering can like the one in my photo, get it, it’s awesome! I found this one in an old shed. I think it’s brass, but I’m not sure. The water pours out nice and gently, which is perfect for house plants. The only draw back is that it doesn’t hold a lot of water, so I have to refill it a few times.
