Free Sedum Adolphii (Golden Glow) Succulents Crochet Pattern

Hi guys! I’m so excited to be able to share with you the first of two free succulent crochet patterns from the Succulents Collection- the Sedum Adolphii (Golden Glow). The Sedum Adolphii is more commonly known as the Golden Glow Succulent because the leave turn a little golden on the tips when you expose them to more direct sunlight.

These plants are absolutely beautiful, but like all succulents, they require a lot of light to stay beautiful. I also think that it is a huge misconception when people say that succulents are “easy” plants. I own a lot of plants but I struggle with my succulents the most, which is why I decided to create crocheted versions of these plants that will stay cute and green even if I forget to water them.

Free Sedum Adolphii Succulents (Golden Glow) Crochet Pattern

The crocheted Sedum Adolphii will measure to be about 3 to 4 inches tall. This plant will look great in a terracotta pot with crocheted soil or in a bed of pebbles. It also looks great when placed into a terrarium with other crocheted plants. You can find the full Succulents Collection, which contains 6 patterns (including the Sedum Adolphii and the soil), in the shop!

Assembly

  • Cut a piece of wire to 5.5 inches long (you can also use an unravelled large paper clip). If you’re going to be fitting the sedum adolphii onto the Soil, you can keep the wire straight. Curl the wire at the bottom if you’re planning to place it into pebbles.
  • Poke the wire though the centre of the stem. This will make the stem a bit more structured and easier for you to sew the leaves on.
  • Sew all 3 leaves from SA1 to the bottom of the stem, making sure to leave a bit of stem exposed at the bottom and space the leaves out equally.

  • Sew one of the leaves from SA2 underneath the previous row, tucking it in between two leaves.
  • Sew the rest of the SA2 leaves a little bit above the SA1 leaves. Try to sew them so that they SA1 peeks through between the leaves.

  • Continue sewing the rest of the leaves going from SA3-SA6 in the same manner.
  • If you’re planning to put the plant into the Soil, insert the wire through the centre of the soil. A little bit of wire will poke through the bottom. Bend the wire so that it sits flat along the bottom. Place the soil into your pot.
  • Sew the bottom of the stem to the top of the soil. Weave all the tails in.

  • Dilute some dark green acrylic paint with water (I used 1 part paint to 10 parts water). With a soft paintbrush, brush around the top of the leaves, making sure not to paint the centre of the leaves. The paint will fade a bit after it dries up. If you find that the colour isn’t as intense as you like when it dries, add a little bit more paint to the mixture and paint over the leaves again.

  • Mix a drop of each of light brown and red acrylic paint. Dilute 1:10 again. With a small paintbrush, brush the colour onto the tips of the leaves. You can also paint parts of the underside of the leaves. The more randomly you colour it, the more natural it will look.

Congrats! You have just finished your succulent plant! Painting the leaves is definitely optional, but I think that doing so adds a bit of dimension and realism to the plant.
