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 Plant Basket is 20” long and about 5” wide, which is perfect for holding smaller pots of the same width.
This design begins in joined rounds that form a triangle, then work upward with chain gaps that create space and a really nice chevron detail.
The three loops used to hang this plant basket are an interesting feature, which also make this design very sturdy.
Use this indoors or outdoors to hold your favorite plants, herbs, flowers or succulents!
This is a great pattern to work up because:
- Baskets like this are quick and easy projects to make.
- You can use most weight 4 yarns you already have in your stash!
- This project works great with cotton yarns!
- You’ll get to practice a lot of crochet skills: joined rounds, stitch tension, gauge & size, chain, single, and triple crochet stitches, finishing techniques & more!

Hi, I was wondering if worsted weight acrylic yarn would be ok to use. If not, why?
Thanks. I can’t wait to make this! I love to crochet and I love plants!!
Thanks for asking Deb! The introduction outlines that worsted weight yarn, and cotton, are best for this type of project. Acrylic can work too, enjoy!
