If you’re looking for a fun and easy way to add some greenery to your home, a crochet hanging planter might be just what you need. These adorable planters are perfect for small spaces and can add a touch of whimsy to any room. In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to make your own crochet hanging planter in just a few simple steps.
Before we get started, let’s go over the materials you’ll need for this project. You’ll need a small plant pot, some yarn, a crochet hook, and a set of scissors. You can use any type of yarn you like, but we recommend a cotton or acrylic blend for best results.
Step 1: Crochet the Base
To start, we’ll need to crochet the base of our hanging planter. Using your chosen yarn and crochet hook, make a slip knot and then chain 4. Join the chain with a slip stitch to form a ring. Then, chain 2 and make 11 double crochets into the ring. Join with a slip stitch to the top of the chain 2.
Step 2: Crochet the Sides
Next, we’ll need to crochet the sides of our planter. Chain 2 and then make 2 double crochets into the first stitch. Then, make 2 double crochets into each stitch around. Join with a slip stitch to the top of the chain 2.
Step 3: Add the Hanging Loop
To make our planter hangable, we’ll need to add a hanging loop. Chain 20 and then join with a slip stitch to the opposite side of the planter. Cut the yarn and weave in the ends.
Step 4: Add the Plant
Finally, we can add our plant to our new crochet hanging planter. Simply place the plant into the pot and then hang the planter using the hanging loop.
Tips for Success
If you’re new to crochet, don’t worry! This project is perfect for beginners. Just remember to keep your tension even and to work slowly and carefully. It’s also a good idea to choose a plant that’s small and lightweight, so it doesn’t weigh down your planter.
