Crochet a simple plant hanger with cotton yarn and this free pattern. This macrame inspired plant hanger is flexible and fits pots up to 5" in diameter at the base.
Crochet a Macrame-Inspired Plant Hanger
I have come to find, after several years of being part of the online fiber community, that many yarn people are also plant people. This free crochet pattern combines both with a trendy little macrame-style plant hanger made with cotton yarn!
Crochet Plant Hangers for Craft Fairs and Gifts
If you are a plant person, you will want to crochet yourself a few quick plant hangers with scrap yarn as a fast summer project! Lacking a green thumb? Make these as gifts or to sell at craft fairs. Don't forget to display it with a pretty pot and a plant. A long, trailing Pothos is a nice choice to show it off!
