Macrame Patterns: Plant Hanger for a Summer Breeze

by Macrame

Plant Hanger by Charlie Emery

This plant hanger is another wonderful pattern from Charlie Emery. He calls this pattern “Summer Breeze.

FINISHED LENGTH: 38 1/2in.

Materials Needed:

-2 inch metal ring
-77yds. 6mm. Polypropylene Cord
-13yds. Yarn in a second color
-27 wooden beads
-10″ pot

1.Wrap the 2in metal ring with 1yd. Of yarn color 2, glue ends and let dry.

2.Cut 12 cords 6yds long each. Center the 12 cords over the ring and tie a square knot loop, with two 1 1/2yd peace’s of cord for 5 1/2in. Fold the loop over ring and tie a wrap knot with 1yd of cord for 2in. Covering the ends of the square knot loop.
3.Dived the 24 cords into three groups of eight cords each.
4.Take one group of cords and dived into two groups of four cords each.

5.Tie a set of alternating square knots; start with two square knots right under the wrap. Tie the pattern for six knots ending on a single square knot with the four middle cords.
6.Take the third cord in from the outside and tie a half hitch onto the second cord from the outside, now tie another half hitch with the outside cord onto the same cord with the first half hitch. Tie a square knot right below the half hitches. (Repeat for the other side).
7.Tie a square knot with the four center cords, now take two of your beads one on each outside cord. (Should be parallel to the square knot). Tie two more square knots with the two groups of cords.
8.Place one of the beads on the two center cords. Now tie two more square knots with the two groups of cords. (This will give us two groups of four cords to work with).
9.Take one of the groups of four cords and tie a square knot sinnet for 10 knots. Place three of the beads on the two filler cords. Now tie three more square knots.
10.Repeat steps 4-9 for the other two groups of cords, giving you three legs for the hanger.
11.Mark out three evenly spaced marks on the top lip of the pot. (These will be your starting points on the pot). Mark every 1/2in for the first leg, move over 1 1/2in and mark four more spaced 1/2in apart. Repeat for the other legs of the hanger.
12.Drill 1/4in holes in the lip of the pot where you have marked, (Best as a two step operation first drill a 1/16in. hole, followed by the 1/4in hole).
13.Drop down 6in and mark each cord. Feed the cords through the holes. Tie each cord with an overhand knot at the 6in mark.
14.Take each group of four cords and tie a square knot up close to the overhand knots. Take the two nearest cords from each leg. You should have two free cords, one knotting cord, two filler cords, one knotting cord and two free cords in each group.
15.Tie a square knot with the four center cords, about 3in down from the last square knots.
16.Use the outside cord as the anchor cord. Take the second cord in and double half hitch it onto the anchor cord about 3/4in down from the top square knot.
17.Take the bottom knotting cord from the center square knot and double half hitch it onto the anchor cord 1 1/2in down.
18.Now use the filler cord from the square knot and double half hitch it onto the anchor cord 3/4in down.
19.Repeat for other side of “V” gather all four cords together and tie a wrapping knot for 1in. (Use the yarn color 2)
20.Take the top cord from the double half hitch on each side and the next one down. Using these cords tie a square knot in the middle of the “V” about 1in lower then the bottom of the “V”.
21.Gather all four cords and tie a wrapping knot for 1in. (Use the yarn color 2)
22.Repeat steps 14-21 for the other two groups of cords.
23.Trim cords ends to 2 1/2in and frizz out.
