Crochet Cactus

 I love making quick and easy crochet appliques.

This cute cactus is one of my favourites!

I used Cotlin, because it's the best....litreally.

It's so soft and your project keeps shape.  It's available in 44 colours!!!!

Check out all the colourways HERE.

Notes before you begin

  • Use cotton, it's best for small projects that have shape
  • Size down your hook for tighter stitches
  • Video tutorial included below to help!
  • This is worked in ONE fluid row, crocheting around and never turning your work!
