I am having so much fun making cute little cacti amigurumi. And it's all so easy!
The only trouble I'm have at the moment is not being able to find how to make small flowers to put on top of my cacti.
So instead I persevered on my own, and I played around with hdc stitches, and I finally came up with this:
And here is the pattern if you would like to make one yourself:
I used 8 ply yarn (which I pulled apart to create 3 ply piece) and a 2.5mm hook.
1. Make double loop.
2. [Ch2, 5hdc in 2nd chain from hook. Slst in double loop.] Repeat 5 times for 5 petals.
3. Fasten off. Close up double loop.
Now that I think of it, I will try to post up some tutorials on how to do some basic stitches and loops, for those who are just starting out.
