How to Crochet a Granny Square Plant Pot Cover

Instead of buying lots of different plant pots you could try customising them instead? We love this granny square make from @thatmakesher for #grannysquaremonth as it can add a bit of your personality into your home in such an easy way. 

You Will Need Abbreviations

ch        chain

dc        double crochet (US single crochet)

st(s)     stitch(es)

ss         slip stitch

yo     yarn over

How To Make
  1. Create a slip knot
  2. Chain 6
  3. SS into the very first chain you made
  4. You will now have a circle

  1. Chain 3
  2. 2x DC into the centre hole/gap

  1. Repeat steps 5 and 6 – Twice
  2. Chain 1
  3. SS into the top of the first chain 3 you did

  1. Chain 1, pull the yarn through , and now the round is bound off

Now change colour

  1. Create a slip knot with a new colour
  2. To join the yarn, put the crochet needle into the gap in the corner before last bind off

  1. Go in from the top, yarn over, pull back through, and slip stitch
  2. Chain 3
  3. 2 DC in the same gap
  4. Chain 2
  5. 3 DC into the same gap
  6. 3 DC into the next gap, which will be at the next corner

  1. Chain 2
  2. 3 DC in the same gap/corner
  3. Now repeat steps 18 and 19 in the next 2 corners

  1. SS into the top of the first chain 3 you did
  2. Chain 1, pull the yarn through , and now the round is bound off

Now change to the third colour

  1. Join the third colour using a slip knot
  2. Yarn over, pull through and slip stitch
  3. Chain 3
  4. 2 DC into the first corner
  5. Chain 2
  6. 3 DC in the same gap/corner
  7. 3 DC into the next gap , which will be on the straight edge
  8. 3 DC into the next corner
  9. Chain 2
  10. 3 DC in the same corner
  11. Repeat steps 31 to 34 around the square until you have crocheted in the gaps in the corners and straight edges

  1. SS into the top stitch of the very chain in this round, full the yarn through. Now you have bound off.
  2. The granny square is complete

 

For the plant pot cover you need to repeat the steps above to create 2 more squares

  1. Weave all the yarn ends
  2. Mattress stitch the squares together

Note: The rounds are based on a small plant pot measuring 6cm (height) x 19cm (circumference)

If you want to create a cover for a bigger plant pot, simply follow the steps given for the third colour, crocheting in all the big visible gaps. You can then make as many squares needed for your plant pot to fit in.
