Are you looking for a fun and unique way to display your plants? Why not try crocheting a sloth plant hanger? Not only is it a cute decoration, but it also adds a touch of personality to your home. In this tutorial, we’ll show you step-by-step how to make your very own sloth plant hanger.
To create your sloth plant hanger, you’ll need the following materials:
- Yarn in brown, beige, and green
- Crochet hook (size G)
- Tapestry needle
- Pot for your plant
Step 1: Sloth Body
To start, we’ll create the sloth’s body using the brown yarn. Begin by making a magic ring and single crocheting six stitches into the ring. Then, increase each stitch in the second round (12 stitches total). In the third round, alternate between one single crochet and one increase (18 stitches total). Continue in this pattern until your sloth body is the desired length (approximately 20 rounds).
Step 2: Sloth Head
Next, we’ll create the sloth’s head using the beige yarn. Repeat the same pattern as the sloth body, but only make it half the size (approximately 10 rounds). Once complete, sew the head onto the body using the tapestry needle.
Step 3: Sloth Arms and Legs
To create the sloth’s arms and legs, use the brown yarn to single crochet four stitches into a magic ring. Then, increase each stitch in the second round (eight stitches total). Continue in this pattern until the arms and legs are the desired length (approximately 12 rounds). Once complete, sew them onto the sloth body.
Step 4: Sloth Face
Using the black yarn, sew on two small circles for the sloth’s eyes. Then, use the pink yarn to create a small triangle for the nose. Finally, use the green yarn to create a few leaves for the sloth to hold onto.
Step 5: Plant Hanger
To create the plant hanger, use the green yarn to single crochet a long chain that is long enough to fit around your pot. Then, double crochet into each stitch until the hanger is the desired length (approximately 20 rounds). Once complete, attach the sloth onto the plant hanger using the tapestry needle.
Congratulations! You have successfully created your very own sloth plant hanger. Not only is it a fun and unique way to display your plants, but it also adds a touch of personality to your home. We hope you enjoyed this tutorial and have fun showing off your new creation.
