To accompany the two free succulents crochet patterns (Sedum Adolphii & String of Pearls), I’ve decided to also share the pot soil crochet pattern for free! This pot soil plushie should fit into a standard 3.25 inch terracotta pot. You can find terracotta pots at your local garden stores or dollar stores for cheap.
To stuff the pot soil plushie, I used a mixture of polyfil and yarn tails that were left over from making the plants. Some of the plants produce a lot of excess yarn tails, so I recommend you make the pot soil after creating the plants if you would like to repurpose the scrap yarn that would otherwise just become garbage!
The difficulty level of this pattern is Easy and this pattern is written in US crochet terminology.

By copying or distributing my patterns without permission, you are making it difficult for designers like me to continue doing what I love. Doing so also discourages me and will prompt me to stop sharing my patterns freely. If you wish to utilize the free patterns, you may do so on my site. Thank you so much for your understanding and for being respectful!
