Macrame Patterns | Macrame Plant Hangers

by Macrame

Just a quick macrame plant hanger pattern for you this lovely fall day. Enjoy!

Materials:

  • 44 yards of either 4mm or 6mm Bonnie Braid Cord
  • One 2″ brass ring
  • Four 22 x 32mm oval wood beads
  • Sixteen 16mm round wood beads

Instructions:

1. Cut 8 cords at 5 yards each, and two cords at 1 yard each.

2. Center the eight 5 yard cords through the 2″ ring. Using one of the 1 yard cords, tie a wrap knot around all cords directly under the ring.

3. Divide the long cords into four groups of four cords each. With each group:

Tie 9″ of Half Square Knots, put all four cords through a 22 x 32mm bead, and using the longest cords for tying, tie another 9″ of Square Knots.

4.  Drop down approximately 5″ and tie on row of Alternating Square Knots. (This joins all 4 sinnets). Drop down 3″ and tie another row of alternating Square Knots. Drop down approximately 3″ and using the last one yard cord, tie a wrap knot around the cords.

5.   Put a 16mm wood bead on each cord end at desired length; tie an overhand knot to secure under each bead. Cut, seal ends with lighter.

6. Mount the plant hanger to a ceiling hook, add a plant and you’re done!

About 35 years ago (during my macrame’g years) I had a macrame pattern of an owl that used a branch above the head and a branch below for the claws to wrap around. The bushy area around the eyes were made by adding 2 wooden circles to the face, then knotting & trimming to a short 2″ fuzz around the circumference of each circle. I think there might have been some beads in the body. It was adorable. I no longer have the pattern and I’m feeling nostaglic. Anyone have a pattern like that? (It isn’t the owl pattern recently posted on this site). I’m also looking for plant hangers (3-4 feet long) patterns using rustic jute. Thanks to everyone for the help!

Hi, I’m Laura and I just signed into this site and know its been couple of months.
Noticed you were asking about the owl and I know which one you are talking about
Don’t know if you found the pattern or not but Kings Country listed on the internet has books they sell and has a picture of that owl on one of their books. You might check there, I don’t think their books are very expensive. I have about 3-4 books left from that era as I loved Macrame too and have couple other owl patterns; one is made into a plant hanger and the other one is called Fiesta which is owl’s body that is made on 10″ and 12″ bamboo rings and its body is a pouch that you can fit dried flowers in. Just wanted to let you know I saw that website with the book pattern you were looking for.

Love the detailed instructions,I do agree with some of the others that Photo’s would have been a very nice touch,But being able to understand while reading I can sort of get a visual picture of how this would look while working..I learned a little bit of Macrame from a Art teacher many years ago and since becoming disable I decided that I would make it a hobby now..I very much enjoy working with these and some of the other patterns I found on the net such as the owls and some of the other animals..However my biggest quest I will be working on very soon will be the honey pot table.. Have you any other patterns you will be adding? Thanks for sharing….Linda.
