:) Sizes:

  • 4″ diameter container CO 54 STS {Knit in the Round, using the magic loop method}
  • Size 9 {5.5mm} circular knitting needles with a 24+” cable
  • 90-110 yards of a worsted cotton yarn
  • 5″ diameter container CO 80 STS {Knit in the Round}
  • Size 9 {5.5mm} circular knitting needles with a 16” cable
  • 125-135 yards of a worsted cotton yarn

:) Pattern:

  • Holding 2 strands of cotton yarn
  • CO 54 or 80 STS, PM, join in the round
  • Round 1: *K*
  • Round 2: K2 *C4B* K2
  • Round 3: *K*
  • Round 4: *C4F*
  • Round 5: *K*
  • Round 6: *K*
  • Repeat rounds 1-6 3 more times {or until desired height}
  • Repeat Rounds 1-5
  • Round 6 BO in the K1, P1 pattern
  • I chose to BO in the K1, P1 pattern because when I BO in all knit STS the STS lay over so I see it from the front and when I BO in the K1, P1 pattern the BO STS are on top of the pattern, however the K1, P1 pattern makes a stretchy edge and it flares out, so I left a long tail and wove it through the BO STS and cinched it tight when I put it on the container. I’m very happy with the end result, so if I made another I’d make it the same way.

:) Knitting Notes:

  • To make it larger or smaller CO in multiples of 4.
  • I CO tightly using the long tail CO method.
  • This is naturally a tight stitch, so try not to knit tightly. If you naturally knit tightly you might want to use a larger needle.
  • It took me about 1 hour to knit a 6 Round repeat :|
  • I tried slipping stitches forward and backwards on the cable Rounds to get them to overlap, so you couldn’t see where the round changes, but I kept getting the same result, an elongated cable, so the above pattern is the best I could create to minimize the “seam” when you change rounds.
  • This stitch was a bit hard on my hands. I only knit 1 set per day until it was finished. I really
    like the end result, so this one is a labor of love for me… not my favorite stitch to knit, but I love the end result!
  • 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 :)

:) About this plant:

I’m not 100% sure what this plant is, but I believe it’s a type of Caladium. Which is tropical type plant and it loves water. I have yet to over water this plant, which is saying a lot. It like bright light, but not direct sunlight. I didn’t add any thing to the soil for drainage so it stays nice and moist. I used potting mix.

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.

PS. I got my 4″ glass jar at Dollar General. It’s an upcycled candle container.
