*EDIT*  I added the pattern at the bottom. 

I totally got this idea from a tutorial on craft stylish.  You can see it here http://www.craftstylish.com/item/45153/how-to-crochet-a-hanging-terrarium-planter.

I didn't have a terrarium, but my mama has wanted a macrame hanging basket for quite some time.  Since I don't know how to do macrame, I figured this would be a great alternative. 

I used a plastic hanging basket for the inside and took the wire hanger off of it.  I followed the pattern as far as the bottom part adding rounds for the larger size, but for the sides I continued the treble stitches increasing the chain stitches between them as needed.  I winged the rope things to hang it, and they didn't come out even, so I think I'm gonna try something different next time.  If I get them right I'm gonna try to write down the pattern and I'll be sure to share it if anybody's interested.





Bottom:
 

Thanks for looking.  I'd love to know what y'all think!


Here's the pattern:

**Another Edit**  I originally had the wrong hook size, but I have now changed it.  Sorry if there was any confusion.

Crochet Plant Hanger

This pattern is for use with a basic, plastic hanging basket like you would find at a garden center or nursery.

Supplies
Cotton yarn ( I used Lily's Sugar n Cream)
US G 6/4.00 MM crochet hook

Base
Ch 6.  Tr into 6th chain from hook.  Ch 1, *Tr into the same stitch as before, Ch 1, repeat from * 10 times. You should have the turning chain plus 11 trebles. Join with a slip stitch to the chain before your first treble.

Round 1: Ch 7, Tr in first Tr of base, Ch 3, *Tr in next Tr, Ch 3, repeat from * around.  Join with slip stitch to the fourth chain.

(This is where the pattern changes from the original on Craft Stylish)

Round 2:  Ch 8, Tr in first Tr of last round, Ch 4, *Tr in next Tr, Ch 4, repeat from * around.  Join with slip stitch to the fourth chain.

Round 3:  Same as round 2.  (This will shape the sides.)

Round 4:  Ch 9, Tr in first Tr of last round, Ch 5, *Tr in next Tr, Ch5, repeat from * around.  Join with slip stitch to the fourth chain.

Round 5:  Ch 10, Tr in first Tr of last round, Ch 6, *Tr in next Tr, Ch6, repeat from * around.  Join with slip stitch to the fourth chain.

Round 6:  Ch 11, Tr in first Tr of last round, Ch 7, *Tr in next Tr, Ch7, repeat from * around.  Join with slip stitch to the fourth chain.

Round 7:  Ch 12, Tr in first Tr of last round, Ch 8, *Tr in next Tr, Ch8, repeat from * around.  Join with slip stitch to the fourth chain.

Round 8:  Ch 13, Tr in first Tr of last round, Ch 9, *Tr in next Tr, Ch9, repeat from * around.  Join with slip stitch to the fourth chain.

As you can see, the space between the trebles is just increased by one stitch each row to fit the tapered sides of a basic plastic hanging basket.

Hanging straps

The straps in the picture did not come out even, so I have altered the original pattern.  These instructions will not make straps that look the same as those pictured.

Ch to the length you want your straps.  I recommend around 75 chain stitches, but you can make them shorter or longer.  (Make sure to make them long enough to tie together at the end.  Also, be sure to remember the number of stitches used so that you can use the same number for each strap.)

SC back down the chain you just made, and across round 8 stopping before the 3rd treble stitch from your first strap.  Sl St in that treble.  Here you will make your next strap.

Ch to the same length of your previous strap.  Sc back down the strap and across round 8 as before, slip stitching in the third treble.

Ch to the same length as the first two straps.  Sc back down the strap and across round 8 to the beginning of the round.

Finnish off and weave in loose ends.  Tie the three straps together at the top with a knot.  Fit your basket inside and hang, you're done.

This is the first crochet pattern I have ever written, so if there are any mistakes, or something doesn't make sense, pm me and I'll try to explain it better.

Thanks for the comments. Smiley  I wanted to add that I'm a beginner with crochet, so with a simple understanding of crochet the original tutorial can easily be adapted to fit any flower pot.  I can't wait to try it on some different styles of pots.  Unfortunately I don't have anywhere to hang them outside either.  I do want to make a smaller one to hang in my kitchen though.  Otherwise I'll be giving them as gifts.

Great idea.  Love the look.  Got me to thinking a lot about organization.  Could be used in kitchen for  cooking spoons and spatulas instead of sittting on counter taking up space which is limited.  Bathroom for hair care items (blow dryer, curling iron).  Gotta have this one for sure.
