Cement décor is so trendy right now! I love the look of cement décor, however I find the color a little bland. Especially with summer around the corner. Scrappy colorful crochet is so fun to work with, and perfect to transform colorless items into something with a lot of color and personality. I came up with a crochet idea that would bring some color and life to my cement pot.
I love the bohemian look of using a lot of colors in crocheting. An easy way to get a scrappy look without having to weave in so many ends is to use a variegated yarn. Today instead of yarn we are using embroidery floss, you could also use crochet thread.

Crochet Idea Pot Cover Pattern

Round 2 ~ 2 single crochets into each stitch around. (20 stitches) Join with a slip stitch and chain one.

Round 9 ~ Single crochet into each stitch round. Join with a slip stitch then chain one. Switch colors, I started using a variegated thread here.
Round 10 ~ Only stitch into the back loop through this round. Single crochet into the back loop of each stitch. DO NOT join use a stitch marker to mark the end of the round.
To make a back loop only stitch, you put your hook under the outer loop only instead of both loops like usual. Then finish the stitch like usual.
Round 11 through Round 23 ~ Single crochet into both loops throughout. Switch yarn when needed or wanted.
When the cover is as tall as you would like it you can start on the edging. Start at the beginning of the round, if you are using your stitch marker this will be easy to find. Then create the Picot stitch around.
To make a picot.
Single Crochet into the stitch like usual, then chain one.
Tie off your end and weave in all other ends. Now you can put your cover on your pot and fill it with something fun.
No surprise I added crochet hooks in my pot.
But my favorite is to add some Darice faux succulent plants.
