For this crochet pattern I used a great yarn from Lion Brand Yarn. It’s their yarn called Kitchen Cotton. It’s a sturdy cotton yarn that works well with any home decor, kitchen accessories (as the name suggests) & of course also crocheted plant hangers.
This yarn is what I typically call a “dry” cotton, which means it’s not as soft as other cottons. What’s great about this is that the stitches won’t move a lot, because the surface isn’t smooth.
For that reason the Kitchen Cotton from Lion Brand is perfect for the crochet Easy Plant Hanger.

THE PERFECT SUMMER CROCHET PROJECT (THAT CAN BE MADE ALL YEAR THROUGH)
The idea of crocheting plant hangers is definitely a crochet idea that’s perfect for summer, mostly because you bring your pots decorated with your plant hangers outside.
But there’s no reason not to make the crochet Easy Plant Hanger at any time of year. Place it in a window during winter & give your plants as much sun as possible.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CROCHET THAT?
How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?
Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.
It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.
All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.

Round 5 – you cover the bottom of your pot: Repeat row 4, increasing the number of chains you do in between the FPdc stitches by 1. The stitch count will increase by 8 stitches for each round.
The bottom of the pot should be covered to get the correct size.
Do not cut yarn, continue directly on the sides.
Repeat the last row you crocheted on the bottom until you have almost covered the sides of the pot. Leave about 1 cm / 0.4 inches.
Note: If you have an irregular shaped pot, you might have to repeat the increase on row 5 to get the correct fit.
Do not cut yarn, continue directly on the straps.
The length of the straps can be customized to fit your pot & the look you want.
For the big pot & the plant pictured the length of the straps equals 40 ch, but you can change the length by deciding on another number to make them longer or shorter.
