New Graph: Cactus In The Sun

I adore boho-themed decor, and if you’re the same, you’ll love this Cactus In The Sun crochet pattern!

Cacti have become increasingly popular in recent years, and their popularity has made them a common design element in fashion and home decor.

They have an interesting appearance and feature unique shapes, textures, and colors that can be incorporated into design elements to create a striking and visually interesting look.

And since I’ve been seeing plenty of crochet items featuring this succulent, I thought—why not make my own desert-themed crochet design? 

So that’s how this cactus c2c pattern was born! 

This design is perfect for beginners because it isn’t complicated at all. It features a simple two-toned green cactus on a sunny background.

There are not too many details on the cactus, only a few lines and some flowers on its arms.

I used mostly greens and yellows and a bit of red as an accent for the original design, but you can play around with color combinations and make it as colorful as you want. 

This design is great if you want to make a trendy flower c2c blanket or a tapestry boho wall hanging. 

Both crochet projects are a wonderful way to decorate your room. You can drape the crochet cactus blanket over the back of a sofa or armchair or fold it neatly at the foot of a bed.

On the other hand, the boho-inspired wall decor piece will look stunning displayed in your living room or on an empty wall in your bedroom. 

If you’d like to know more about c2c crochet, I have a guide for beginners that’s complete with videos and tips about this technique. 

You can also use this cactus c2c crochet pattern to make other crafts that require pixel graphs, like cross-stitch, Hama beads, diamond painting, and many more. 

It’s a versatile pattern that can help you to make numerous handmade gifts for your loved ones. 

Friends and family members who are fond of the boho aesthetic and all things desert-themed will likely appreciate this design. It can be given for a birthday, holiday, or any other special occasion.

And like the rest of my designs, it includes two patterns: row-by-row and C2C.

The row-by-row pattern is perfect if you’d like to make small-sized crochet items like wall hanging or baby blankets, while C2C is great for bigger projects.

Aside from the size and colors, you can also personalize this cactus crochet blanket by adding tassels, pom-poms, or appliques. These embellishments add a fun flair to your project and make it more unique. 

If you enjoyed this design, here are some of my crochet patterns with similar boho-like themes: Mountain LandscapeMountain Goat, and Night Forest Landscape
