Crochet Plant Hanger

*Pattern is here.

My mama told me once that she wanted one of those macrame hanging baskets. She loves gardening and I really wanted to make her one. So, I started reading up on macrame, and decided that the last thing I needed was a new hobby to leave more stuff laying around, namely a big board with nails stuck out of it. I gave up the idea until I was given a perfect alternative while browsing online the other day.

Cal Patch on Craft Stylish shared a great tutorial for a terrarium hanger. You can see it here. As soon as I saw it I knew I could modify it for a hanging basket. It took a little trial and error, but I got it worked out and gave it to mama last weekend. She really likes it. It definitely looks better than the wire hanger originally on the basket. I was worried that it wouldn't hold the weight, but it did fine. I'm gonna work out a few problems with the ropes that hold it (they didn't come out completely even), and try to write down the pattern. Whenever I get that done I'll be sure to post it.
