How to Yarn Bomb Your Garden

(C) Crochet Today! magazine

Introducing the "Ring Around the Rosy Cozy" from the March/April 2013 issue of Crochet Today!.  I was asked by the editor, Theresa Gonzalez, to design a flower pot cozy for this issue and she definitely wanted a flower motif as part of it.

How did I do?

I came up with my own version of a mosaic stitch pattern for the bottom portion.  It uses a shell stitch instead of straight sc or dc.  I'm really happy with how it came out, and I love their pictures!  Visitors to the Garwood home are very likely to see something like this adorning some pots in our front yard this summer.

The yarn is Red Heart Soft in #4600 White, #9870 Deep Sea, and #9779 Berry.  The cozy is designed to fit a flower pot that is about 6" tall with a bottom diameter around 3 1/4" and top diameter around 6".  I would love to see pictures of finished flower pot cozies on my facebook page or on Ravelry.

How is your winter going?  Are you already stitching for Spring?  What are you working on?

Happy Stitching!

April
