Custom Size:

If you would like to make this hanger your own size you can do that very easily, lets break down how it works:

Building the Base:

First we start making a star pattern.   You want to make the star so it fits around the bottom of your base.  Crochet the never-ending star for as many rounds until the inverted peaks cover the base of your pot.

Depending on your yarn and hook you may need to grow more or less to cover the base.
Building the sides:

Once you have the base sized for your pot you can begin building the star upwards to create the sides.

To do this you simply follow the same star pattern as you would to grow the star, the only change is you will replace that HDC stitch with a SC stitch.

Continue adding rounds to your star, replacing each HDC stitch with a SC stitch until your star comes up 2/3 from the top.

Use the start pattern with the SC stitch until the star is 2/3rd of the way up the pot.
Adding the hangers:

The final round should have all SC stitches, and no need to skip stitches or keep count, simply SC in each stitch.  When you reach the CH3 spaces you will add in your CH, connect it to the ring, and SC back down the CH.  Be sure to place a SC in the CH3 space before and after your long CH.

Lets discuss the length of your CH.  I personally like 37 chains exactly for the T-Shirt yarn.  It makes my plant stretch to about 18 inches from the top.  Depending on where you are hanging your plant you may want this longer or shorter.  32CH’s give you about 12-15 inches.  Just keep in mind when determining your CH length that it will stretch considerably, here are a few CH counts for t-shirt yarn and the length you get from them:

32CH — 23in. from point of hang to top of pot

37CH — 27in. from point of hang to top of pot

If you are using a different yarn, simply CH until you reach your desired length.  I would stretch the CH to take my measurements, as it will be stretched when a plant is in it.

Once you work your CH to the desired length just remember the first stitch working back down the CH will also be worked over the craft ring, making it nice and easy to hang.
