Free Pattern: Crochet Hanging Plant Pot Holder

tomacreations - hanging pot holders 1

These extremely simple hanging pot holders were developed over night, combining my love for succulents with my addition to crochet.

Materials and Tools needed:

  1. Natural durable yarn/cord e.g. jute twine cord (can be found in DIY stores and supermarkets), hemp or sisal cords. Thick cotton yarn is another option
  2. Hook size 5mm
  3. Scissors
  4. Plastic pot or container with diameter and height between 10-15cm (4-6in). You can also use a ceramic pot/container but due to the weight you might need to drill a hole in the wall rather just using a hammer and a nail.

  • Finished Size: the finished size fits well any container with diameter and height of 10-15cm (4-6in).
  • All the instructions and abbreviations are given in American (US) terms
  • Work in continuous rounds without turning unless otherwise specified in the pattern

Rnd 1: With your cord/yarn create an adjustable ring, ch × 3,   (dc × 13) into the adjustable ring, slst into 3rd ch a the beginning of the Rnd.

Rnd 2: ch × 4,  (dc, ch) × 13, slst into 3rd ch a the beginning of the Rnd.

Rnd 3-8: ch × 5,  (dc, ch × 2) × 13, slst into 3rd ch a the beginning of the Rnd. Once you completed Rnd 8 continue to hanging Chain No.1.

Hanging chain No.1: ch × 40, skip 3 squares, slst into 3rd dc, fasten off secure and hide the tail.

Hanging chain No.2: skip 4 squares and introduce new cord/yarn into 4th dc, ch × 40, skip 3 squares slst into 3rd dc, fasten off secure and hide the tails.

You will have three squares between start and end of each hanging chain and 4 squares between them as indicated on the picture below.

Connecting holding chain: with new cord/yarn ch × 15 pass the chain under each hanging chain and slst into first ch to make a circle.

Place your plant into the container and hang it :).
