Crochet Cactus Garden ~ Free Pattern
There are a few cute cactus patterns out there. I found Nadia's "How to Crochet a Cactus" on Flickr and became inspired to make a few cacti. I even went so far as to make a pattern for these four cacti! They are really quick and easy to make and stand about 6-8 inches tall. Share your pictures with me if you make one!
