Hangin’ in the Sun Plant Hanger Free Crochet Pattern
This pattern is a beautiful macrame inspired hanger for potted plants. It looks beautiful hanging in front of windows or outdoors! made with durable cotton yarn it can withstand the elements! I designed this out of necessity, my plant was being attacked by caterpillars and needed to come inside. My mother nearly fainted at my stating that I would rather have spiders than butterflies in my garden! lol
This pattern works up quickly! in less than an hour actually! and i made it using BERNAT Handicrafter cotton yarn in white, although any cotton should work just as well! this planter fits any basic 6″ pot, and adds a lovely boho touch to any room! whether you have 1 or 100! I’m making a few for every room in my house as an excuse to buy more plants! Anyway, here’s the pattern, enjoy!
I used a 5.5 MM crochet hook, but you can use a bigger or smaller one, and get a slightly bigger or smaller project

Round 1: chain 4 (counts as 1st dc) dc 11 into the 1st ch, slip into 3rd ch (12 total)
