Each model has its own glamor and here you can check out tips on how to choose and how to make a cachepot without being experienced in the technique.
By the way, this piece is an excellent accessory for beginners in crochet , due to the practicality of making basic models that are also very beautiful.
How to make a crochet pot step by step
See the list of materials needed to make this craft:
- crochet hook 7mm
- String No. 24
- tapestry needle
Use your favorite string and start by making a magic circle.
Don’t close the circle yet and make a chain with six more single crochets. Let the tail of yarn follow the entire row of single crochets.
Once you’re done, pull the yarn and close the circle, tying a small knot to finish off the yarn. Close the row with a slip stitch.
Make the second row with two single crochets in each base stitch (increases).
The third row intersperses an increase with a normal single crochet, without increases.
In the fourth, intersperse an increase with two single crochets without increases.
When you get to the fifth row, take only the back loop of each base stitch to make a single crochet. Single crochet over each base stitch without making any increases.
At the end of the row, replace the slip stitch with another finish to avoid the mark left by the slip stitch.
The finishing happens after making the last stitch, so lengthen the loop and take the loop to the back of the piece, passing through the first chain. From the back make a chain and leave a loop, bringing it to the front through the first single crochet.
Follow with a single crochet in each base stitch, including over the finishing stitch that was made in the previous row and continue fastening off in the same way.
Make as many rows as you want in the same sequence, to structure your cachepot. Finally, finish with a row of slip stitches.

What is the difference between vase and cachepô?
Vases are used for planting plants and, therefore, have holes underneath to drain the water, and are often accompanied by small plates as well.
They need to be specific for each type of plant, for example, porous pots made of clay or coconut fiber will retain less water as they will absorb moisture.
These vases will be more recommended for plants that do not like excess water, as is the case with succulents and cacti, among other types.
The cachepô is a decorative object, used to hide the vase of the plant, but it can also be used for other needs, such as serving as a basket to organize items.
The word “cachepot” has its origin in France, meaning “to hide the pot”. Thus, unlike the vase, it does not have holes and is not used for direct planting of any type of plant.
The cachepô can be made of various materials, as well as the vase, but it is especially an ornamental accessory that increasingly shows itself with interesting applications.
Best threads to make crochet cachepots
Prefer thicker yarns to thinner ones or even use knitted yarn. However, nautical yarn may be the best option if the desire is to have a waterproof, lighter and easier to wash garment.
Experiment with sophisticated lines too, to create elegant ornamentation without the risk of fraying, unless this is part of the style/model.
Bet on lines and brands known and recommended by other artisans, use lines from Euroroma, Anne and Círculo, for example.
Ideas for using hanging crochet pots
To suspend the cachepot, some kind of support is needed, be it short, like a small handle, or long, from “legs” made of ropes and wires around it.
With the handle it can be hung on small hooks attached to shelves, to be slightly inclined.
With the larger stand, with several legs around it to support and balance it, you can hook it to the ceiling and make it more comfortable.
Twine crochet cachepot
The twine is the darling for crochet crafts, especially since there is an incredible variety of colors and shades.
The twine thread is also easier to find and more economical, in addition to ensuring that all the yarn on the skein will have the same thickness and the same color. Unless the string is a blended color or has a special effect.
In addition, the coolest thing about the string crochet pot is that the pieces are cute and simple.
For some it may be easier to weave beautiful ornaments using this thread and to make the thread harder it is possible to use resin to waterproof the whole piece.
Which cachepô ideal for succulents?
The ideal is to make a cachepot with the mesh wire for succulents, but any line is also valid.
The most important thing is the type of vase the succulent will be in, it needs to be porous material to absorb moisture and help prevent water accumulation.
Using waterproofing threads, therefore, is not the best option, but small gaps made through looser stitches may be enough to help in this condition.
There are very rustic models that look beautiful with succulents, as well as more modern baskets, in the clean style. Choose according to your aesthetic preferences and take good care of your little plant to make the most of it.
crochet cachepot for beginners
If you are a beginner, worry more about the choice of materials. Use threads that are neither too thick nor too thin, as this can make it difficult to handle the needle.
Also remember that the size of the needle depends on the size of the thread, but each craftswoman can also have her own peculiarities in this regard as she learns.
Be careful to make a balanced piece, with stitches that are the same size and without creating too many ripples.
Start with simple models, those that are small and have stitches that are repeated almost throughout the entire piece.
Avoid making amendments, so buy the weight of the skein according to the size of the cachepot (make amendments only if necessary).
Keep practicing crochet to gain more skill and make the cachepot patiently, without rushing. It’s a great piece for beginners and has everything to work on your first try.
