Crochet Plant Hanger

Exciting news!! Many of my non-crocheter friends have asked if I could make one of my plant hangers for them, and I’m happy to say I can finally offer my plant hangers as custom made-to-order items on my Etsy! Check out the different color options and choose the perfect new home for your plant babies!

Custom Handmade Plant Hangers


I live in a small apartment and my love for plants has meant that 90% of the available surfaces are covered in lovely green things. Unfortunately I need that other 10% to sleep and eat on, so I designed this cute little plant hanger so I can make use of my walls and keep this plant addiction going.

I’ve included step by step pictures along with the instructions to help you make your own little plant hanger. If you make one please be sure to tag me on Instragram (februaryskydesigns)!


  • Bernat Home Dec Yarn, or similar Bulky Level 5 yarn made of cotton/acrylic and nylon.
  • size N/10 crochet hook
  • large eye sewing needle
  • stitch markers
  • 2.5 inch wooden ring (one per hanger)
  • 1.5 inch wooden ring (one per hanger)
  • large wooden beads (optional)

Stitch abbreviations:

  • Chain (CH)
  • Skip (SK)
  • Slip Stitch (SL ST)
  • Single Crochet (SC)
  • Half Double Crochet (HDC)
  • Two Double Crochet Together (2DCT)

Special Stitches:

Two Double Crochet Together (2DCT): Yarn over, insert hook into first stitch, yarn over and pull up one loop (three loops on hook). Yarn over and pull through first two loops on hook (two loops on hook). Yarn over, insert hook into second stitch, pull up a loop (four loops on hook). Yarn over and pull through first two loops, yarn over and pull through last three loops. Stitch finished.

Final measurements:

Width (before hanging): 8”

Height (before hanging): 10”


-Pattern calls for holding two strands of Bernat Home Dec yarn (or similar) together and using them as one strand as you crochet. This yarn is a Bulky weight (5) yarn. Any yarn may be used for this pattern, but the size and structure might be affected.

-There is no CH before or after each 2DCT, starting in Round 3.


Round 1: CH 20. Work 3 SC onto 2.5” wooden ring.

Continue round with 19 more CH’s. SL ST into first CH to create a circle as you’ll be working in the round for this pattern.

Round 2: CH 2 (counts as HDC). SK one CH, HDC into next CH. CH, SK, HDC until you reach the 3 SC’s on the ring. Work 1 HDC into each SC.

Continue to CH, SK, and HDC around until you reach the end of Round 1 (the first CH 2).

Round 3: HDC into the space after the CH 2. Continue to CH and HDC into the CH spaces from the previous round until you reach the 3 HDC’s at the ring.

Without making a CH, 2DCT in the second 2 HDC’s you made on the ring. Place a stitch marker in the 2DCT if you need help finding it for the next round.

2DCT made in 2nd 2 HDC’s.

Do not CH after 2DCT. HDC in next CH space. CH, then continue HDC + CH around in the CH spaces.

HDC made in CH space next to completed 2DCT.

Round 4: Continue HDC + CH in the CH spaces of the previous round. When you reach the 2DCT from the previous row, do not CH and make a 2DCT in the top of the 2DCT and in the HDC next to it. Do not CH and make a HDC in the very next CH space. Continue to CH and HDC in the CH spaces around.

2DCT from previous row and the HDC (with stitch marker) where you’ll make your 2DCT.
Finished 2DCT shown, with a stitch marker to show the CH space where you make your next HDC.
HDC completed, with stitch marker used to mark the 2DCT, which is where you start your 2DCT of each round.

Rounds 5 and 6: Repeat round 4, making your 2DCT in the 2DCT from the previous row and the HDC next to it.

Stitch marker in the 2DCT.

Round 7: Continue HDC + CH in the CH spaces until you reach the 2DCT from Round 6. Complete 2DCT as normal.

Finished 2DCT of Round 7.

Instead of making your next HDC after the 2DCT, continue to make 2DCT stitches in the CH spaces around the circle. Do not CH in between the 2DCT stitches.

Shown is 2nd 2DCT stitch made in the next 2 CH spaces after the 1st 2DCT.

Continue making 2DCT in the CH spaces. SL ST into the top of the 1st 2DCT to complete the round.

Completed round of 2DCT.

Bring a long tail through the SL ST and whip stitch around the 2DCT’s.

Pull the tail tight to close the circle. Tie off the tail, but don’t cut it off if you plan on adding a tassel.

The hard part’s over! Now you’ll want to weave in your starting tail, making sure to pull it across to make an even front edge.

It’s time to make the tassel! Using one strand of your yarn, make 11 loops about 10 inches long.

Cut the loops at the ends of the strands. Grab your smaller wooden ring, a wooden bead and your sewing needle. Taking another strand of yarn, bring one end through the bead, up through the ring, and back through the bead again. Tie the ring and bead to the tassel strands in the middle.

Using another strand of yarn, tie a knot about an inch under the top of the bunch. Weave the ends of this strand back into the middle of the bunch to hide the knot a little more. Then trim the bottom of the tassel to make a neat bottom.

Using the tail you left from the end of the planter base, take another bead and bring the yarn through it once, through the wooden ring, and then back up through the bead again.

Pull tight and weave in the end inside the plant hanger. You did it! You’re finished!

Use a 3×4 inch or 4×4 inch round plant pot without holes as the base of the planter. Add a plastic insert with holes and a small plant and sit back and enjoy!

  4. I do not know how to crochet but would love to learn, this is so small I think it would be a good project to start with as it would be finished quickly (or am I wrong)? do you have a downloadable pattern please?

  5. I am having a hard figuring out what type of pot to use. I got a long artificial plant to hang in it. Any help is greatly appreciated!

  8. Hi! I love this plant hanger! This is my third attempt at following your pattern for it. Every time I get to the last row and there are not enough chain spaces to finish the last 2DCT before the ch space marked for the ending slip stitch! How many 2DCT are supposed to be on the last round? I’m very frustrated that it’s not working out right! I’ve been crocheting for many years but can’t seem to follow your pattern. Do you have any idea what I might be doing wrong?
