Can I customize this cozy pattern?
The answer is yes! You can absolutely customize your own version to fit different planters perfectly.
Base = Continue the repeats in section 1 until you have a similar size to the base of your planter.
Height = continue the repeats until you have the desired height for your planter/container.
The latter part (flare) can also be repeated until your desired measurement or completely left out.
Can I substitute the yarn weights?
Absolutely, you can change the weight. The prototype was made using DK (#3) weight yarn. You can use any weight of yarn, but when you do so, make sure to check against the container you intend to place into this. Bear in mind, the finished measurements would greatly be different from mine!!!
