Flowers are good for all sorts of occasions and with Mother’s Day coming up, this crochet flower pot would make a lovely gift. It’s the perfect size to sit on a desk or shelf and doesn’t require any watering. Make it in your mum’s favourite colour and add some twine and a charm for an extra special touch.

I can also see it being a big hit at Spring markets. I mean, who doesn’t love a plant that they can’t kill?!

How to Crochet a Plant

You can crochet a plant as long as you’re comfortable with basic stitches and amigurumi techniques. Sometimes extra materials are required such as a small pot, wire, glue or other embellishments.

Pattern Overview

This crochet flower pot pattern is no-sew (yay!) and works up fairly quickly. You’ll need to be familiar with front loops and back loops as we’ll be using them to create detail and join new colours.

I used both a piece of card and toy pellets in the base for extra stability as well as wire in the stem to make the flower posable.

A lot of crochet plants require a small pot to put them in and it can be tricky to find a pot in the correct size plus you’ll need to be aware of your gauge to make sure that your plant will fit. Well… not this plant. I wanted to make it as easy as possible for you.


I love cotton yarn for amigurumi so it’s no surprise that it’s what I used here. You’ll want to choose a yarn that will give your flower pot good structure and stitch definition as the stem is quite thin and this will help it hold it’s shape. Also look for a variety of colours so you can make all the pretties!

Finished Size

The finished flower pot measures approximately 5″ (13cm) tall. Size may vary depending on tension and materials used.


Gauge is not important in this pattern. Use a hook size to match your chosen yarn. Make sure that your stitches are tight enough to prevent stuffing showing through and adjust hook size if necessary.


  • Pieces are worked in a continuous spiral starting with a magic ring unless otherwise specified. Mark the first stitch of each round with a removable stitch marker.

R19: Ch 1, turn. BLO hdc in first st, [dc] x41 (42)

Fold down the rim of the pot to the round of leftover back loops from R17.
Fasten off invisibly to first hdc. Weave in ends.

Measure the base of the flower pot and cut a circle out of card. Place in bottom of pot.

Soil (brown)

Join brown yarn in the first leftover back loop from R17 of the flower pot.

R1: Ch 1, sc in same st and in each st around (42)

R2: [5 sc, invdec] x6 (36)

R3: Sc, invdec, [2 sc, invdec] x8, sc (27)

R4: [Sc, invdec] x9 (18)

If using, fill 1/4 of the pot with toy pellets. Start stuffing and continue to stuff as you go.

Tip: Focus stuffing towards the outer edges to create a flatter top.

R5: [Sc, invdec] x6 (12)

R6: [Invdec] x6 (6)

Cut the yarn leaving a tail and pull through last st. Weave the yarn tail through the back loops only of the final round and pull to close. Hide the end inside the pot.

Stem (green)

Note: My stem did not require stuffing but if you’re using different materials, you may want to stuff the stem lightly as you go.

Join green yarn in the first leftover back loop from R6.

R1: Ch 1, sc in same st and in each st around (6)

R2-12: [Sc] x6 (6) 11 rounds

R13: FLO [inc] x6 (12)

Fasten off invisibly and weave in ends.

Measure the stem and cut a piece of floral wire that is approximately 1 cm longer. Use pliers to bend over the tip of one end. Insert into the stem with the rounded end facing up and embedding the sharp end into the pot. It should not protrude from the stem, trim if necessary.

Flower Centre (yellow)

R1: 6 sc in magic ring (6)

R2: [Inc] x6 (12)

R3: [Sc] x12 (12)

Fasten off invisibly and weave in ends.

Flower Petals (flower colour)

Place the flower center wrong sides together with the top of the stem. You will be crocheting the petals using both loops of the flower centre and the back loops only of the stem. Add stuffing when you’re 3/4 of the way around.

Join yarn in any st.

R1: [Ch 7, hdc in second ch from hook and next 4 chs, sc in last ch, sl st in next st] x11, ch 7, hdc in second ch from hook and next 4chs, sc in last ch (12 petals)

Cut the yarn leaving a tail and pull through last st. Bring the yarn tail down through the same st as starting. Weave in ends.

Bend the stem slightly so that the flower is facing forwards.

Optional: Tie twine around the pot and thread on a charm before tying in a bow. Trim ends.

  1. Can you clarify how to connect the flower center with the stem? The center has 12 stitches and the stem has 6, how do we connect them?

  2. When you say turn in the row 19 of the pot, do you mean turn it around or inside out? If I don’t turn it inside out, I can’t use the BLO for the soil, or I did something wrong. Also, do I stitch the rim to the pot or will it just stay down? Thank you!

    1. Turn so that you’re working in the opposite direction, the right side of your work should be facing outwards. You’ll have a round of leftover back loops from R17 to work the soil into. I find that the rim stays in place but you can sew it down if you wish.
