Macrame Patterns: Plant Hangers Part 2

by Macrame

This is another very easy & basic plant hanger for you to create, or perhaps something to get a friend started and hooked on this fun craft! This pattern is very similar to the Basic Plant Hanger Pattern last week, but it adds beads.

Materials:

-45yds 6mm Braided Polypropylene Cord

-One 2 1/4in metal ring

-Eight 3/4″ wooden beads, and eight 1/2″ wooden beads (Color to match cord).

Cut:

-4 cords – 7 yards long

-4 cords – 3 yards long

-2 cords – 1 yard long

  1. Use a scrap piece of cord to tie the center of all eight cords together.
  2. Center the eight cords over the ring, and tie a wrapping knot for 3in.
  3. Separate into groups 2long and 2short cords each. You now have four groups of four cords each group.
  4. Take group one and tie a square knot close to the wrap, using 2 long knotting cords and two short filler cords. Continue to tie a square knot sinnet for 5 knots (about 3in.)
  5. Now tie a square knot crossover taking the two filler cords and make them the new tying cords, and a 3/4in. bead to the new filler cords and tie a square knot bellow to hold it in place.
  6. Tie a second square knot crossover right below the last square knot revering the cords, tie in reverse of the last square knot crossover add a 3/4 bead as before. You now have two square knot crossovers.
  7. Now  tie a half knot sinnet for 4 in. about 9 half knots one complete turn. End with two square knots.
  8. Now tie a drop down square knot where we will add two of our 1/2in. beads to the outside knotting cords, tie the bottom square knot up under the beads Now tie two more square knots, giving us 5 knots from the half knot sinnet.
    We now have a total length of 16in of knots.
  9. Repeat for the other groups of cords. You now have all four legs of the hanger.
  10. Drop down 5 to 7 in and tie a row of alternating square knots, to connect the legs and begin the basket.
  11. Drop down 3in and tie another row of alternating square knots.
  12. Tie a third row of alternating square knots up close to the last row to close the basket.
  13. Cut a wrapping cord 1yd long. Gather all tail cords together directly under the last row of alternating square knots. Tie a 1in gathering wrap. Trim and wrap up close and fuse ends. Trim tail cords to length. Fuse ends to prevent unraveling or tie a over hand knot to finish.
