I recently read that only sometime during the recent 80s, Cattleya Orchids have started to be sold as Pot flowers, until then, Cattleyas were only sold as cut flowers. Which made me wonder, they look so beautiful in a Pot, how nobody thought about it before that ? right ? Couldn’t find an answer for that ..
Either way, Cut or Pot, Cattleyas have always been one of my favorite Orchids – and I am really grateful for the opportunity to spend some one on one with these beauties. It took a couple of weeks, and much more than a couple of tries : ) but, in what seemed like try number 2849, finally all the elements came together the way I hoped.
Pattern is available here, and its a pleasure to crochet. I would be quite a challenge if you are a beginner, but should be a fun project if you are an experienced crocheter.
