Amigurumi Potted Plant Reviewed by Danielle Skupas on 2014-06-18 *****
Also my first amigurumi & also made for my mother on Mother's Day 2014. I have a couple of suggestions: 1. Make sure your pot is made with sturdy yarn. I bought another brand yarn "Soft" because it was on sale. This was okay for top, but pot was too mushy.
2. I had to use bigger hook for pot - maybe I was too nervous, but first pot turned out miniature.
3. I created top & then applied it to pot - after making sure it would fit.
4. On first attempt, I overstuffed & pot leaned too much to one side. On final attempt I made sure beads were centered (& used fewer).

I may have made too many flowers, but I just put them on. I also created girls' headbands with extra flowers.

This turned out really nice! I made it as a Mother's Day gift for my mom, and she loved it. For the pot part, I followed the pattern but made it with some extra fat yarn which I had lying around because I wanted it to be bigger than the one in the picture. Then I made the top and flowers with smaller, regular-sized yarn. Of course, for that I had to add a few extra rows to the top to make it fit the pot and make quite a few extra flowers. At first, I was doing all my hdcs wrong, so more than half of my flowers came out rather circular until I figured out my mistake. But it still looked nice and wasn't so noticeable.

This was the first amigurumi project I ever started on, and now I'm really enjoying making more amigurumi. Thank you! :)

I finished this as a gift for a friend last night. I stopped around row ten (it might have been eleven, though), as I thought it would turn out too tall if I did it farther. I made five leaves and only sixteen flowers, but other than that I stuck to the pattern, and I was so pleased with the way the rim on the pot came out, I wasn't expecting it to look right, heehee :). Thanks!

I made one for my great grandmother and she loved it. Super easy!

This was great! I attached the flowers and leaves to the top before attaching top to pot. I wish there were better instructions for putting the top & pot together.

I added a few embroidery stitched as little stems and leaves. I made 25 flowers and 12 leaves. The flowers were with a hook one size smaller than the hook for the pot & lid.

Also, use the miracle loop start for the flowers.

This was a fun pattern to work. I made this as a gift for my mom for Mother's Day; I wanted to give her flowers that wouldn't wilt...LOLOL!!! I used yarns from my stash. It came out so well that I made smaller versions for my sisters. They all loved their flowers!! The pattern was fairly simple to stitch and assemble. I did take heed from other comments about weighting it for stability. I washed out an individual serving-sized ice cream cup w/lid filled with uncooked white rice. I then used fiberfill firmly stuffed around the ice cream cup to help give it shape and stability. This would be a great project to make and give when you can't send real flowers, such as ICU or allergy sufferers. It would also be a great thank-you gift for teachers. :-)

This turned out great! It was easy but as a beginner, it took me some time. I made the top till round 10 and it looked fine. I also put a piece of plastic at the bottom of the pot to keep it stable and sturdy. Overall I think this is a pattern that everyone should try out.

I loved this pattern. I made it for my father who is recently admitted to a nursing home. Something to put on his bedside table to liven it up a bit.
I stuck to the pattern and had no problems with the size. I actually had one flower too many :-) I also omitted the leaves.
