Add some instant Bohemian good vibes to your home or office by pimping out your plant pots with this free quick and easy Plant Pot Sock Cozy crochet pattern using Popcorn/Bobble stitch.



Plants are awesome! They instantly put out tonnes of good energy and positive vibes into your home and work space, and some even clean and purify the air...amazing!

But sometimes we can be guilty of leaving them neglected and sitting sadly in the boring, ugly, brown plastic pots they came in... why not add a little vibrant, boho, gypsy soul charm by yarnbombing them with this fast and simple crochet pattern/tutorial using popcorn or bobble stitch, and double (US single) crochet?! Yay!

This quick and easy crochet pattern can take less than 35 mins for a smaller pot and uses chains, double (US Single) crochet, and treble (US double) crochet to create bobble stitch or popcorn stitch, whichever is your favourite!

I'll be using bobble stitch in the written pattern here. If you use popcorn, just replace each bobble st with a popcorn.

You will need:


  • A selection of beautiful bright yarns - why not use up your scraps to stashbust?!
  • 4.5 mm crochet hook or size appropriate to your yarn
  • Scissors
  • Cute plant
