Bear Plant Holder - Crochet Pattern

Bear Plant Holder was created a couple years ago to hold all of the little plant starts, & has been recently updated for the Dollar Days Blog Hop hosted by Simply Melanie Jane.

The Blog Hop will start 10/11/23 and end 11/8/23.


This Bear Plan Holder crochet pattern will be featured on 10/30/23, where you will be able to get the pdf from Ravelry or the e-pattern from Ribblr for just 1 dollar (as the name of the blog hop eludes to) during those 24 featured hours!

Each day during the blog hop, a wonderful designer will have a turn being featured in which you will be able to get their featured pattern for $1.00 USD. This is a great way to get introduced to some amazing designers and find out what your preferred pattern style is to follow. You can find the host blog with all the coupon codes here with the Round up/Get the Coupon Code button.

If you don't want to wait or do all hopping; you can get all the patterns of the blog hop now! For just $12.99; that is less than a dollar a pattern, with the "Purchase the Collection" button, the collection will only be available until 11/9/23, after that this amazing deal will be gone.

Here are the 24 great designers participating in this blog hop.

The blog post here has the written instructions for the Bear Plant Holder crochet pattern, the pdf has a few photos to help those who are more visual when they follow patterns. There is also a YouTube tutorial embedded here to walk you through the steps of this planter, if you find it helpful hit the subscribe button!

To Make the Bear Plant Holder you will need a few items and need to know a few abbreviations, if there are any abbreviations you do not know or any you need help with check out the abbreviations link, I am continuing to add more video tutorials to each abbreviation for your convenience.
