Mallow Crochet Flower Pot

When I was trying to come up with a name for the crochet flower pot “thing”, as a non-English native speaker, I got confused with trying to figure out the difference (if there is any :)) between plant or flower pot cover, cozy, holder…

Then I realized that it wasn’t really matter, as long as it made your living space comfy and bright, and your plants even more beautiful.  


Even if you aren’t really a plant lover, you probably have a couple of succulents at home, since they are easy to grow and known for bringing luck and good energy. At least I like to believe so.

Also, I bet you have at least one plant- obsessed friend or a botanist teacher so the flower pot covers make such great quick, last minute gifts. The best thing about them is that you can crochet them with any yarn from your stash, working with one or more strands held together (they don’t even have to be the same weight). I like using two strands in different colors, because I love the marled effect they give, especially with bright colors.  

You can adjust the size of the Mallow Flower Pot Cover & Candle Cover patterns, to fit pretty much any pot or a container.

Two Shapes of the crochet Flower Pot Covers

I made a set – plant pot and a candle cover – because I wanted you to be able to make covers for both common shapes – cylindrical one with the same top and bottom circumference, and the one with the wider top part. The fact is that the candle holder can be used as any cover or cozy – from cans to pot.

Once you get the size you need for the bottom, the rest goes very easily.


Actually, you can take these patterns as an instruction for making any type of cover. You can use your favorite stitches and yarns, start playing and create your own design while bringing life and color to your space.





SKILL LEVEL: INTERMEDIATE. You should be familiar with working different single and double crochets as well as cluster stitches.



Yarn Weight: #3 Light Worsted Weight / DK /14 WPI, double stranded. I used Alize Cotton Gold (3.53 oz / 100 g; 330 m/ 361 yds) per skein, but in fact, you can use any weight yarn for these types of projects. You can work with one or more strands of the same or different weight yarns. Some of the yarns my testers used are:  You can see their work on Ravelry HERE.
