Macrame Patterns: Plant Hanger with 2 Tiers

by Macrame

Plant Hanger by Kristen T.

This lovely plant hanger features 2 levels and consists mostly of square knots and half knots. Might be considered slightly beyond a beginner, but if you can do the basic macrame plant hangers, then you should be able to handle this one!

Materials Needed:

-4 yds. of 3-ply natural jute
-Four 3/4in. wooden beads
-Eight 1/2in. wooden beads
-Four 3in wood rings
-Four 1 1/4in wood rings

  1. Cut 16, 4 yards, long cords of 4 ply or #72 natural jute. Take eight cords and fold in half, tie a scrap piece of cord around the middle to hold in place.
  2. Cut a 1yd. long peace of 4 ply or #72 natural jute and tie a wrapping knot for two in. Trim the ends and seal.
  3. Divide cords into four groups of four cords each.
  4. Tie a half-knot sinnet for 6 1/2in. (about 22 knots)
  5. Take one of the 1/2in. wooden beads and thread it onto the two filler cords, followed by on of the 3/4in. wooden beads, with a second 1/2in. wooden bead under it. Giving you three beads two 1/2in. and one 3/4in.
  6. Tie a half-knot cross over; (make the knotting cords the filler cords and the filler cords the knotting cords).
  7. Tie another half-knot sinnet for 4 1/2in. (about 14 knots)
  8. Take one of the 1 1/4in wood rings and put the two filler cords through it. Tie a square knot under it to hold in place.
  9. Repeat steps 4-8 for the other three groups of cords.
  10. Drop down 3in. and tie a row of alternating square knots to make the basket.
  11. Tie two more rows of alternating square knots up close to close the basket.
  12. Cut a 1yd. long peace of 3-ply natural jute, and tie a wrapping knot for 1 1/2in. up close to the last row of alternating square knots.

Cut cords ends to 1 1/2in. and frizz.

(START BOTTOM HANGER)

  1. Take two 4yd. long cords of 4 ply or #72 natural jute and fold in half, place on one of 1 1/4in wood rings.
  2. Use a 1yd. Long peace of 3-ply natural jute. And tie a wrapping knot for one in. Trim the ends and seal.
  3. Tie a half-knot sinnet for 6in. about 21 knots three complete turns.
  4. Take one of the 3in wood rings. Drop down 1 1/2in. and double half hitch the four cords onto the top of the ring.
  5. Tie a square knot in the center of the ring. At the bottom of the ring double half hitch, the four cords onto the bottom.
  6. Drop down 1 1/2in and do a cross over, use the two center cords as tying cords and the two outside cords as filler cords. Tie a half-knot sinnet for 1 complete turn 2in. about 6 knots.
  7. Repeat steps 14-19 for the other three legs of the hanger.
  8. Begin to tie the basket, take one filer and one knotting cord from opposite groups and tie a row of alternating square knots 3 1/2 in. below the last knot.
  9. Drop down 3 1/2 in. and tie another row of alternating square knots with a second row of square knots right below, giving you two square knots in this row.
  10. Drop down 1in. and tie another row of alternating square knots, with a second row right up close to the last row to close the basket.
  11. Gather all the cords into a group and tie a wrapping knot for 1 1/2in. using 1yd. Of 4 ply or #72 natural jute. Trim the ends and seal ends.
  12. Trim cord ends to 1 1/2in. and frizz.
