If you are wondering if you have the right yarn in your stash, worry not more! This pattern is super versatile and can be made with nearly any yarn or hook. All you need is your choice of yarn, hook and your intended pot so you can make sure you get the perfect fit.

I did a bit of experimenting and tried a few different strings to make mine. This one is made with raffia string that can be found on Amazon. The raffia is fairly strong, but without knowing for sure how much weight it could handle, I opted to make it for one of my smaller pots. It worked wonderfully!

Macrame string worked for a heavier pot, and turned out quite excellent. Not only was it super quick to whip up, the string is strong, so I have no worries about whether it can handle this heavier ceramic pot.

Additionally, I designed 2 additional patterns that are included in the PDF download. They are also easy and fun to make, and can also be made with different yarns.

One design is a good choice for minimalist lovers, or perhaps for showcasing a lovely pot that you don’t want hidden behind the basket of a plant hanger. To make this, you need clothesline and any yarn and hook. Medium yarn and 4mm hook worked well to make a tight, sturdy project, but I think it would work with many kinds of yarn. The pattern includes 3 common sizes, but you can play with this using a larger hook or bulkier yarn.

The last design included in this plant hanger pattern pack is this star-shaped plant hanger, that definitely gives off hippie boho vibes. Although the pattern includes only one size, the pattern can be used for different sized pots, and the size can also be adjusted with different yarn weights and hooks.

You will love the plant hanger planter pack! It includes three designs!

Begin with a Magic Ring
1. Ch 2. Dc 12 into ring. Join with a sl st. (12 sts) 

2. Ch 4 (counts a first dc st and next 2 chains). *Dc in next st. Ch 2* work 11 times. Join in the 2nd ch of the 1st 4 chains. (36 sts)

3.  Ch 5. (Counts as first dc st and 3-chain sp). *Dc in next dc. Ch 3* work 11 times.  Join in the 2nd ch of the 1st 5 chains.

4. Ch 6. (Counts as first dc st and 4-chain sp). *Dc in next dc. Ch 4* work 11 times.  Join in the 2nd ch of the 1st 6 chains.

Continue this pattern, increasing a ch in between the dc stitches until your circle is approx. the same size as the bottom of your pot. (Or stop after row 3 if needed.)

Then, repeat your last row 2 – 4 times until it goes up high enough on the pot for your liking. My small one only needed two rows here, but my taller ones needed 3, 4 or more.  You will need to work more rows if you are working with finer yarn and a smaller hook.
Tie off. 

To add the hanging strings, you will need to cut three lengths of yarn, about double the length you like. Make it a bit longer than you think so you have space to tie a knot). Fold each piece of yarn in half, and using the loop end, tie them using a simple lark head knot through a dc st (not a ch space) spacing them evenly apart.

Then, tie a knot at the end of all your strings. It’s helpful to place your pot inside the crochet plant hanger before tying this knot so you can be sure the strings are all perfectly even.

  1. Greetings,
    Just finished plant hanger using your Free pattern, I used Jute twine, my kokedama ( Marbled-Money plant) swinging in it & so is Happy now__/\__
    Thanks for sharing the pattern with Best Wishes 🙏🙏🙏

  2. I love the idea of these! If someone decides to use yarn that isn’t raffia or macrame yarn, how do you combat the stretching that crochet/yarn tend to want to do?

  3. I just made this, just in leftover wool to try the pattern, and it worked out fantastic ;) I’ll definitely make a few in some bright outdoor yarn, thanks!

  4. I love the idea of outdoor yarn. Would it be suitable for a swing seat. I just bought a hard rubber one , but now I’m thinking a softer yarn one could be just the thing. Love all your posts!!!
