Do you have houseplants around the house? Ones with long tendrils reaching out to grasp onto the nearest object they can find? Then you need houseplant clippings, friend, and I know just the hangers in which to grow them. Use this free plant hanger crochet pattern to make some!
Do you download the Friday Freebies from Kroger and their affiliate stores? A few weeks ago my local Kroger affiliate offered a digital coupon for a free cup of the new Yoplait Oui Yogurt, a French style yogurt sold in these adorable little glass jars. Aren’t they cuuuute?!
So there I stood in the yogurt aisle admiring these puppies, wondering what I could do to upcycle these little guys when inspiration struck! We currently use mason jars for our houseplant clippings, so I could totally create a cute little houseplant clipping plant hanger crochet pattern! Ta-da!!!
Houseplant Clippings Plant Hanger Crochet Pattern
For these houseplant clipping hangers, we’ll use just a bit of cotton yarn, a size H/5mm crochet hook and some suction cups rated for up to 3 lbs. Overkill? Maybe. Better safe than sorry, I say. 😉 And the water used for growing the clippings is heavier than you may think.
Round 1: Magic circle. 12sc in circle. (12)
Round 2: 2sc in each st around. (24)
Round 3: * sc in next 5 sts, 2sc in next * repeat between * * around. (28)
Round 4 – 7: sc in each st around (28)
Round 8: * ch-6, sk 3 sts, sc in next * repeat between * * FIVE times. Ch-6, sc around the first ch-sp of this row (see photos)
Round 9: * ch-5, sc around the ch-sp from previous row * repeat between * * SIX times. Sc around the next ch-sp.
Round 10: * ch-3, sc around the ch-sp from previous row * repeat between * * FIVE times. DO NOT FASTEN OFF.
Straps for hanging:
Starting at the end of round 10, ch-25. Fasten off leaving a long (20”-ish) tail. First strap made. Evenly space two more ch-25 straps for hanging. Weave in all ends.
Pull all three chains up and make sure they are even in length before tying together. Tie a knot using all three of the strap chains.
Take the leftover yarn ends and form a loop for hanging. Keep from losing the loop by placing a stitch marker. Next, wrap the remaining yarn around and around, using your yarn needle to push all yarn ends up through the center to secure.
Voila! You’re done!! Take your suction cup hangers and slap that bad boy on a kitchen window. Clip some of your favorite houseplants and add a bit of water. After a while (with many varieties of houseplants) they will start to grow roots that you can then transplant to a pot with soil.
Aren’t these fun? And who would have guessed these had a prior occupation as a yogurt container?! Certainly not me! 😉 I’m thinking the larger baby food jars and smaller mason jars would also work well!
