African Violets

Recommended Posts

I saw this pattern in my regular Lion Brand newsletter, and just had to make it--it's so cute!

 

It was quick and easy to make; I made it during our recent snowstorm (we got 22" or more!).

 

I have it in our basement family room--the perfect plant for down there, since there isn't any daylight! :lol

Very pretty! Glad you got some good crochet time in with the weather we just had. Looks like more is on the way though :flake:snow:flake:wgrin

Very pretty and so low care.

Oh how pretty. I love african violets. I use to raise them under lights in my basement in our home in New Jersey.

I like yours better, no mess and no fuss.:hook

Love the African Violets. I never have much luck with the real thing. I'll have to give these a try myself sometime.

very pretty - have you seen planetjunes version?

Thank you...yes, I've seen Planet June's version, and hers are a lot more realistic-looking! This pattern, however, was a freebie! :)

I'm so IMPRESSED!

Very, very, nice. Wouldn't this be a great gift for a nursing home or hospital patient, teacher or just about anyone.

Thanks for sharing.

Annie's Attic had a whole series of potted plant patterns back in the 80's... I have the whole set but have never made any of them. I wanted to make a few of them for a friend that could only kill plants but never did get to it...

 

What a great way to sit out a snowstorm!

I was just checking the Lion Brand website cus this would be an awesome mother's day gift for my mom (she ALWAYS had african violets when i was growing up) but I can't seem to find it.. Would you happen to know the name of the pattern or if it's even on the website at all???

I guess it's considered "amigurumi". Have fun! It's very easy and quick!

 

Oh...it called for "polyfill pellets" which I didn't have, so I used rice!

I've made part of this, but I'm struggling to see how to sew the top onto the pot.

 

Where did you sew it on at?
