Who has joined me in becoming a bit of a plant lady? I'm considered a plant lady in training since my track record for keeping plants alive is still in review. But at least I'm making my real, and also faux, plants look amazing with this Knit Herringbone Cozy.

I was also able to see a good friend and discovered she also developed the same passion! It was so fun to follow her around her home and see all of her plant babies. I have a new wish list of plants and also learned a tip. Did you know you can use old coffee grounds as a fertilizer? I had no clue. Read more about making your compost from things you would typically discard over at The Homestead Garden.
Not having the bottom can be helpful if your plant sits on a water tray. And don't be afraid to play with sizing. The knit cozy pattern is very flexible to fit your needs. I also think this makes a cute drink cozy for a coffee mug or water bottle.
The first pattern I publish with the herringbone stitch was for a knit baby bonnet pack, the third edition. I absolutely love creating baby bonnets with awesome textures.
