Knitting: Plant Cozy

Yes, I am on a knitting spree. I didn’t even know that I liked knitting so much until I made the scarves! Before I tackled that project I had only ever known the knit stitch and I thought it was a bit boring. But when I started adding more stitches and cables I realized it was kind of fun. A little project I could do while watching TV. Even better :)

When I saw this post on Design*Sponge featuring the yellow basket weave plant cozy, I knew I had to make one for myself! Using left over yarn, I followed the instructions and came up with this:

Cute? I love it. I’m not sure exactly which room it will call home but I’m sure I can find a spot for it. That’s why I made it white, it can be moved around and fit in with in any room in my house. But for now it is resting in my entryway.

I’m thinking this basket weave pattern would be really cute as a scarf but I’m feeling like I probably could have too many scarves if I do that (since I’m still promising myself I WILL make a cable knit one for me!). Does anyone have any other ideas for this pattern? I love it too much to just save it for a plant cozy :)
