This pattern is worked in joined rounds using basic stitches including the Chain, Single, Double, and Slip! This plant hanger is worked in one solid piece, including the hanging loops!
The full length of the Hanging Herb Holder is 23” long and about 7” wide, which is perfect for holding most flower posts of the same width! The six loops used to hang this plant holder are an interesting feature, which also make this design very sturdy. This can be used indoors or outdoors to hold any of your favorite plants, herbs, or flowers!
