It sure is turning into fall up here, and before you know it the snow will be here and Charlie Brown will be on TV, while your cooking that turkey.  Honestly I can’t wait, I love the movies the atmosphere and the food in fall, it’s perhaps my favorite season.  When I think about fall Charlie Brown and his Christmas tree almost always come to mind.  I needed to re-pot a plant that kinda reminds me a lot like Charlie Brown’s Christmas tree, so whats one to do?  Well I say crochet it, and since its fall, and since I’ve got Charlie Brown on the brain, I decided to make my version of Charles t-shirt into a plant cozy and share it with you.  This cozy will fit over a 3 gallon pot, and is worked in rows creating a chevron pattern that is even-offed at both ends.  This pattern is quick and easy to make up, and would look great in any colors to match your style.
