DIY Knit Planter Cover

I’ve attempted knitting before and quickly discovered that I don’t have the patience for it. My cousin, Kailey, is one of the most patient humans I know and happens to do a lot of knitting and crocheting so I like to give her projects to make for me from time to time. Last March I asked her if it would be possible to make a knit cover for a planter and she whipped one up the next day and sent me written instructions on how to make it. I loved it and told her I wanted to share it on the blog at some point. So 11 months later, I finally got around to taking photos of them. Ha! I have a few other projects in the works with her that I’m excited to share!DIY Knit Planter Cover @themerrythoughtWhat you need:
