The perfect house warming or geek freak knit....a hideous cyclops pot plant!

Simply pop this lovely into a plant pot about 3-4 inches high for an unforgetable gift or conversation piece.

N.B. The ButterflyLove lawyers have asked us to point out that ‘pot plant’ is an English expression, which refers to a potted plant. This pattern does not contain instructions for the creation of knitted soft drugs. Sorry.

The ButterflyLove cyclops pot plant pdf knitting pattern gives you clear step by step instructions to knit a plant approximately 12 inches tall, with a removable eye and posable stems.

This pattern is suitable for an intermediate knitter and is knitted flat. It's a substantial project so allow up to a week to knit this up.

You can contact me at any point if you need technical advice or have any other queries.
