Stockinette Stitch Plant Cozy Knitting Pattern

Grab this FREE Beginner Plant Cozy Knitting Pattern to spruce up your potted plant.

Knit this super quick and easy garter stitch cozy for your plant pot. I love knitting these cozies, they’re so much easier than baskets, because they don’t have a bottom on them! This also makes it a great stash buster knitting pattern. :) Happy knitting!

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. Learn more about that here.
