These extremely simple hanging pot holders were developed over night, combining my love for succulents with my addition to crochet.
Materials and Tools needed:
- 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
- Hook size 5mm
- 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 :).
