Recycle those plastic grocery bags into beautiful works of art!!!

These sculptural and modern plant pods are beautiful and functional too! The woven plastic retains water, keeping the soil moist and the plant well-watered while also allowing airflow and drainage, keeping the plant healthy and thriving! For outdoor use, this planter can be set anywhere that the draining water won’t damage the surface. For use indoors, or on damageable surfaces, place the pod on a plate or tray to catch any drips.

This pattern offers detailed instructions on how to make the plarn needed for the pattern as well as instruction for making three sizes (small-4” diameter x 2” high, medium-6” diameter x 3” high, large-8” diameter x 4” high) of ombre style plant pods. With lots of photos and written details, this pattern is an easy-to-follow how-to. (knit in the round.)
