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 Plants:

I have several little pots of succulents and I thought it would be nice efficient to consolidate some into one pot. So, I’m transplanting them into a glass jar and knitting a cozy for it. Here’s what I did:

  • 1. Clean glass container
  • 2. Put rocks on the bottom, or something else for drainage. FYI – the rocks made my pot heavy, Monty Don recommends using Styrofoam to help with drainage and it keeps your pot light.
  • 3. Add some soil mixture.
  • 4. Add plant(s). I transplanted all of these, roots and all.
  • 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. {FYI – the rocks made my pot heavy, Monty Don recommends using Styrofoam to help with drainage and it keeps your pot light.}
  • 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.
