I don’t have green fingers so this is the perfect cactus for me, plus there are no spiky spikes!

I was recently asked to knit this cactus for a friend, and thought I would share the pattern with you. My friend is using the cactus as a pincushion, but you could just knit them for fun decorations.

This cactus is knit in the round (I used Magic Loop). The cactus and pot are knitted separately and sewn together.

FINISHED SIZE: The cactus and pot are approximately 14cm tall.
