Crocheted Houseplants
by Emma Varnam


"I enjoy gardening and I also enjoy having houseplants in our home; a combination of succulents and leafy plants. Some have survived many years, others I have unceremoniously killed through overwatering or neglectful drought. Luckily, using crochet, you can make a plant that is impossible to kill." -Emma Varnam

Plants can make any space feel more tranquil, and by making the unique projects in this book, you can enjoy a lush green indoor oasis without ever having to remember about watering, repotting or feeding. Ideal for armchair growers who aren't keen on getting their hands dirty, these crocheted beauties will give year-round horticultural satisfaction, without any of the hassle. You'll find retro crowd-pleasers, like yucca, spider and Swiss cheese plants, along with the dramatic purple foliage of coleus, the delicate blooms of the moth orchid and the manacing venus fly trap.

Crocheted Houseplants features 25 stylish projects to revive your home or office decor and create a lush indoor garden. This book is the sequel to Emma's bestselling Crocheted Succulents and does not disappoint! Flip through the stylish gallery pages, pick your favourite plants and get started. Everything you'll need to know is included in the book, from tools and materials to explanations of the basic crochet stitches. You'll also find out how to pot up and display your fabulous crocheted creations.

In my opinion:

Crocheted Houseplants has become my new favorite crochet book. I am also one who kills plants, not on purpose but possibly too much water (love). Whatever the reason for my unsuccessful gardening skills, I love anything that has to do with yarn. So, of course, I was excited to review Crocheted Houseplants. I am a beginner with crochet (I mainly knit) so I appreciated the crochet techniques as well as the illustrations so I could visualize. In this book, you will find 25 fun and easy projects. Of course, I was drawn to the Poinsettia and unfortunately don't have enough time to make it this Christmas season but it does appeal to me. Emma also included patterns for crocheted soil. She really thought of every detail to make this book a complete assortment of houseplants. I am in awe of her skills. I definitely recommend this book.
