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 of 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.
hOW TO CROCHET AN EASY POT PLANT COVER – fun facts about this crochet project JOURNEY:
- The whole cover took me less than an hour to crochet;
- I wanted it a tad higher but ran out of yarn (on a weekend);
- The yarn is hard on one’s hands and if you are experiencing any problems with wrists or hands, use softer yarn. Some adjusting to the pattern will be needed.
- Adjust the pattern by increasing the number of rows, and stitches…there is no magic formula to it – you can totally do it!

PATTERN explaining how to CROCHET an easy POT PLANT COVER:
Starting with 10 chains and slst into the first chain to form your circle or make your magic circle
First Round: Ch 3, dc 20 in the circle (20 dc + 3 chains), sl st in 3rd chain = join.
Second Round: Ch 3 + dc 1 in first dc (=2dc), dc 1 in next st, *dc2 in next st; dc1 in following st; repeat from * 8 more times, dc 2 in last st (32 dc’s); join.
Third Round: Ch 1, sc 1 in same st, sc 2 in next 2 stitches, *sc 2 in next st; sc 1 in next 5 stitches, repeat from * 3 more times, sc 2 in next st, sc 1 in next 3 stitches, sc 2 in last sc (39 sc’s); join.
Fourth Round: Ch 3, in the back loop of every stitch around, DC 38 (39 dc’s), join;
Fifth Round: Ch 3, (dc 1, ch 1, dc 2) in sl st of previous round, sk 4 stitches, *(dc 2, ch 1, dc 2) in next st, sk 3 stitches, repeat from * 5 more times, (dc 2, ch 1, dc 2) in next st, sk 2, join;
Sixth Round: Sl st next dc and into 1 ch-space, (ch 3, dc 1, ch 1, dc 2) in same ch-1 space of previous round, *(dc 2, ch 1, dc 2) in next ch-1 space of previous round, repeat from *6 more times, (8 pattern stitches around), join;
Rounds 7-8: Ch 3, dc 1, ch 1, dc 2) in same ch-1 space of previous round, *(dc 2, ch 1, dc 2) in next ch-1 space of previous round, repeat from *6 more times, (8 pattern stitches around), join.
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 the pattern and join.
Fasten off and weave in all ends.
