Crochet Plant Hanger Free Pattern: The Suzette Double Hanging Basket

Last Updated on December 16, 2023

The idea of a crochet plant hanger came to me since I wasn’t able to grow any plants around the house with my cats eating them and digging in them. This idea hit me after I designed the Suzette Hanging Basket (if you are looking for a super easy plant holder pattern, this is also a great option!).
Because this crochet plant hanger pattern is made as a basket plant holder, it can also be used as a crochet hanging basket. You can use it to  keep your yarn, or WIP, it will also be very nice as a storage for your bathroom supply.
I think this plant hanger will be a beautiful gift for housewarming and also a great item to sell at a craft market.

How to Crochet a Plant Holder?

There are a few different ways to crochet a plant hanger. Some of the plant hangers are made to be hanging from the ceiling, and usually will be constructed from strings similar to a macrame string plant hanger. Another option to make a plant holder is by making a crochet wall plant holder, which will be kind of a basket shape, so the plant is placed inside the basket.

What Yarn Should You Use for a Crochet Plant Hanger?

This pattern is crocheted with 2 worsted weight yarn strands held together. The best yarn for this kind of project would be cotton. It is a strong fiber and will keep the shape of the basket. You can also use one strand of Chunky yarn instead of 2 Worsted strands held together.
For this basket, I used Knit Picks – Comfy Worsted yarn by WeCrochet. This is a Worsted (#4) weight yarn, it is 75% Pima Cotton, 25% Acrylic, it’s strong enough for home decor projects, yet still nice and soft.
More optional yarn for this project would be:
Lily Sugar n’ Cream
Premier Home Cotton Blend
Knit PIcks – Dishie

About the Suzette Double Hanging Basket Design and Construction

This crochet plant hanger is made from two pocket shaped baskets.
Before working the basket’s body, we are making the loop, and then starting to make the basket.

The basket is made using the C2C Suzette stitch to create 2 connected triangles. The triangles’ corners are then folded and sewn to create the pockets.

The Suzette stitch creates a dense and beautiful textured thick fabric, which is strong enough to hold the plants and any other items you put inside the baskets.
