Succulents have taken over every modern home in the last few years. I even made a succulent cacti granny square last year – because everyone needs a yarn succulent in their life.
After I made some crochet roses, it got me thinking about how the pattern could be adapted to be a little spikier and a little more succulent-y (that’s not a word, but I like it anyway).
Really, this pattern is the same as my crochet rose pattern but with one little adjustment within the petals. So if you’ve tried out the rose already, this will be easy as pie.
I’ll be putting together a very special project using these succulents & crochet roses very soon – make sure you’re subscribed to my newsletter updates to see what I do with them!
Go ahead and check out the handy video tutorial below – it’ll help ya lots!
-Worsted weight yarn (I used Red Heart Soft in guacamole)
-Size H 5mm crochet hook
Ch any multiple of 10 +1. I chained 51 in the video above
Row 1: Sc in 2nd from hook, *Ch 2, sk 1, Sc in next, repeat from * across, Ch 2, turn
Row 2: *(In Ch space work 2 Dc, Ch 2, 2 Dc, Ch 1, sl st), sl st in next Ch space, Ch 1, repeat until you’ve worked about 1/3 of the way down the Row, repeat sequence above substituting Hdc for Dc until you’ve worked all but 3 Ch spaces, Repeat sequence above substituting Sc for Dc until you’ve finished the Row, finish off leaving a long tail for sewing.
Starting with the Sc “petals”, roll up the rose keeping the bottom (where you see your foundation Ch) in a flat spiral, not a cone shape.
Thread your tapestry needle to sew through the foundation Ch spiral to secure. (See the video above for more specifics!)
Don’t forget to PIN this pattern to your Pinterest boards!

Love this! I actually made some crochet succulents about a week ago and they are the perfect thing, especially since they don’t die (I have a terrible habit of killing the real ones). If you are interested, here is my post where I share my crochet succulents: http://www.craftycucumber.com/2017/02/crochet-succulents-and-elephant.html.
