Pattern Macramé Plant Hanger
Start with cutting 5 yarns of 3 meters and 1 yarn of 3,5 meters.
Then put all 6 yarns together and fold them double in the middle. Bind the yarns together with the longest yarns such that you create a loop to be able to hang the holder. Wrap the longest yarn 9 times around the remaining yarns and fixate it by drawing the yarn through the last wrapping.
For the next step, sort the yarns into 3 groups of 4 yarns. Take 1 of the groups and start with making the half knot. Work these knots until you have a piece of 10 cm (15 knots). Repeat this for the other 2 groups of yarn.
Skip 10 cm. Make new groups of 4 yarns (taking 2 yarns of the previous one group and 2 yarns of the other group). Make a square knot. Repeat this for the other groups of yarn.
Skip 30 cm and make new groups of 4 yarns (taking 2 yarns of the previous one group and 2 yarns of the other group) and make a Josephine knot. Repeat this for the other groups of yarn.
Skip 8 cm Make new groups of 4 yarns (taking 2 yarns of the previous one group and 2 yarns of the other group). Make a square knot. Repeat this for the other groups of yarn.
Skip 8 cm and bind the yarns together with the longest yarn and fixate them after wrapping around for 4 times.
To finish, cut the remaining yarns to a desired length and pull some of the yarns a little bit apart.
