The Boho Plant Hanger has been a MMC item for a little over a year now so I would say it's about time I get a pattern written up for it! This pattern is originally based off my Mason Jar Carrier design but I wanted to create a plant hanger with the same concept, just this time with a little more detail. After some long and hard brainstorming, an unhealthy amount of coffee, and lots of dance parties, I finally found a design that I liked for my new plant hanger.
The style I went for in this pattern gives off a hippy or bohemian feel (hence the name) and it's a design that can be used in any style of living space. Sometimes I like to call them my "propagation stations" since most of the time I use my hangers to place cuttings in. These are perfect for propagating plants because they can hang right in the window and get all the light they need to grow some roots! All plants are cute so these hangers would work great with any kind of plant and they work well in any style home. Plus! Since the basis of this project is just yarn and a jar, this pattern is great for creating inexpensive last minute gifts or a quick DIY.

Round 14: CH 1, 2 HDC in each CH 1 space from the previous row. Join with SS. (40)
Now it is time to add the hanging portion of the hanger.
Starting at the last stitch of row 14, count 10 stitches to the right and place a stich marker in the 10th stitch . Count another 10 stitches to the right and place a stitch marker in the 10th stitch, continue this once more. You should end with 3 stitch markers placed evenly around your hanger. These markers are going to be where our hanging strings will be connected to.
Strap one: Once you have your stitch markers placed, starting from the stitch you ended row 14 with CH 90 *or however long you would like for your hanger*
Slip stitch the CH 90 to the stitch with the marker directly across from where you started this chain.
Strap two: Moving from where we just connected and going to the next stitch marker on the left, SS in each stitch until you hit the marker. Once you are in the stitch where the maker was placed, remove the marker. CH 90 like we did for the first string. Also like the last string, SS the CH 90 to the stitch with the marker directly across from where you started this chain.
Once you have connected your chain with a SS to your hanger, you can finish off the hanger by SS to the next 5 or so stiches. This is to add some extra support to the second strap. Then simply finish off and weave in the ends
And TA DA! You have yourself a Boho Mason Jar Plant Hanger! You can finish your hanger here or continue reading for a special addition.
To make the top of your hanger even cuter, add a hanging loop!
To do this, wrap yarn around four of your fingers 7 times
Cut the yarn once you have made your 7th wrap but do NOT cut the strings in half
Remove the wrapped yarn from your hands [At this point you should have a ring of yarn with two strands of cut ends]
Then place the ring over the top of the hanger strings [The top point of the plant hanger strings should be in the center of the ring.]
Place 2 fingers inside the ring going under the plant hanger strings
Grab the other side of the ring and pull the other side of the ring under the pant hanger strings and through the opposite side of the ring
Pull tight and cut off the lose ends
And now you have yourself not only an adorable place to hang your plant babies, but it even has a stylish hanging loop to hang pretty from in your home.
