Hi there! Welcome to part three of my cacti & succulents crochet pattern. In this part we are going to make a round cactus with a nice star like flower on top.

The other parts of my pattern can be found here:

Part 1 – Tall Cactus
Part 2 – Aloe Vera
Part 3 – Round Cactus
Part 4 – Echeveria
Part 5 – String of Pearls Plant
Part 6 – Foundation & Assembly

All parts of the pattern are written in US terms.

So here we go with part three of the English version of my cacti & succulents pattern (the original Dutch version of the pattern can be found here).

Round Cactus

Supplies

  • Green yarn and a small amount of pink and yellow yarn, I used acrylic worsted weight yarn
  • Crochet hook size E (3,5 mm)
  • A safety pin or stitch marker
  • A large tapestry needle
  • Polyfill stuffing

Quote

Use a safety pin or a stitch marker to mark the beginning of each round, this way you will never lose count.

Skill level

  • You need to know how to crochet a chain, single crochets, half double crochets and double crochets. I also use a Magic Circle in this pattern, but it’s optional.
  • You need to be able to increase and decrease.
  • The cactus is crocheted in amigurumi style. Amigurumi is Japanese for ami meaning crocheted or knitted and nuigurumi meaning stuffed doll. It is usefull if you have any previous experience with crocheting in this style, but it is not necessary.
  • This pattern should be easy enough for beginners, but don’t hesitate to ask me any questions you might have.

Abbreviations

MC = Magic Circle
ST = stitch
CH = chain
SS = slip stitch
SC = single crochet
Sc2tog = single crochet decrease, single crochet two together

Quote

Note: When crocheting in the round try not to put your increases on top of each other every round, instead change the spot (like in this pattern). This way your circle will become nice and round.

If you need help with making a Magic Circle, this Youtube video may be helpful for you.

If you don’t want to use a Magic Circle you can also chain 2 and crochet the amount of stitches noted in the pattern into the second chain from your hook.

Both methodes work fine for this pattern.

Are you guys ready? We were born ready Tante Koek!

Let’s make a flower to put on top of the cactus. I used pink and yellow yarn for the flower, but you can use any color you like of course. We start with the outer leaves of the flower.

Using the pink yarn: work 12sc in MC (12)
Close the circle with a slip stitch in the first sc (photo 4).
Ch6, start in the second chain from your hook: 1ss, 1sc, 1hdc, 1hdc, 1dc (photo 5).
Connect the leave to the circle with a ss in the third sc of the circle.
Repeat this cycle connecting the leaves to the 5th, 7th, 9th, 11th and 1st sc of the circle (photo 6).

4. The centre of the flower

5. Connect the first leave here

6. This is what the outer part of the flower should look like

The inside of the flower has 4 leaves instead of 6.

Using the yellow yarn: work 8sc in MC (8)
Close the circle with a slip stitch in the first sc (photo 7).
Ch5, start in the second chain from your hook: 1ss, 1sc, 1hdc, 1dc (photo 8).
Connect the leave to the circle with a ss in the third sc of the circle.
Repeat this cycle connecting the leaves to the 5th, 7th, and 1st sc of the circle (photo 9).

7. The centre of the flower

8. Connect the first leave here

9. This is what the inner part of the flower should look like

Sew the two parts of the flower together using a tapestry needle. Fold the inner leaves, if necessary, towards the middle of the flower and sew the flower on top of the cactus.

To create the white dots on the cactus you can use your hook to pull out some of the polyfill stuffing. Or you can leave it as is. 

I hope you have enjoyed the third part of my pattern. And again, if you find any mistakes in the pattern or faults in my grammar (English is not my native language) please let me know.

Have fun with it and when you’re ready let’s continue to part four!
