How to Crochet an Easy Pot Plant Cover

Pot plants are thoughtful gifts for friends and family and I don't know about you, but I don't like to leave the plastic pot uncovered, which off course led to - how to crochet an easy pot plant cover!

There are so many different patterns available, but the pink T-shirt yarn in my stash was desperately calling to be turned into something useful.

And... combined with a chunky looking pattern, it turned out quite a gift wrap.

Continue in this manner until your work is the desired length. My pot plant cover has only 9 rounds.

Last round: Same as Round 7-8 - but instead of 1 ch between the 2 dc's, I made 2 ch's (to form a type of picot), continue with pattern, join.

Fasten off and weave in all ends.
