GONZALES The Angry Cactus - Free Pattern

Some time ago, I saw something like this while I was browsing around. Now I made my own!
Let me introduce to you: Gonzales the angry cactus! :)

This really cute guy got a place in my new workspace, right next to my sewing machine. There he will always keep the pins ready for me now.

Crocheting Gonzales took me about one evening. To make him able to stand upright I put two tea lights in the bottom of his pot. A stone or some cherry stones or something similar would work fine as well.

Because he is very useful and I like him so much, I want to share my pattern with you.
