With the aluminum wire, make the contour of the cactus using your drawing template of the cactus pattern previously drawn.

Be sure to leave an extra 1 cm at each end so you can close it later.



Thread the knit on the wire.


Hook together the ends of the wires and tie the ends of the knitted cord around. If there is too much knitting, remove a little bit then stop the stitches.



Make a small pompon that you fix on the cactus.




Your knit cactus is finished. To hang on a wall, you can use a bug ... Easy to do, easy to hang!
