HELPFUL TIPS & PATTERN NOTES

  • My pattern uses US terminology.
  • Always read through the pattern before you start to familiarise yourself with it.
  • Colours are for reference only and will vary depending on the light settings of your monitor/devices.
  • The pattern was designed in a cotton/bamboo blend but can be made in any yarn. Just remember to use the correct hook size for the yarn you have chosen.
  • If you are working in thicker or thinner yarn your finished project size may vary.

Helpful hint: you can continue making your basket longer by repeating the last round, but adding an additional chain three, skipping next stitch, double crochet into chain three per round.

PATTERN – PART 2

HANGING STRAPS

Make 5.  Using two strands of colour (STONE) join in any chain two space from round 8 with a slip stitch, then chain 40, cut yarn leaving a 20 cm tail.

You can lengthen the hanging straps by adding more chains before cutting the yarn.

Make a tight, secure knot with the tail ends.  You can add your pot plant now and hang it up.

THANK YOU

Thank you for your support and I hope that you enjoy making your That 70’s Pot Plant Hanging Basket.
