Crochet Plant Holder (Free Pattern)

I made this little plant holder out of cotton yarn to brighten up a bare corner of my living room and I love how it turned out. It looks so cute and worked up so quickly. I thought it would make a lovely gift aswell, so after making one for myself, I made a few more for family and friends who love plants as much as me. I think it would look even better with a trailing plant.

This plant holder should fit a 3-4″ pot. The pot I used was 3″ diameter on the bottom, 4″ diameter on the top and 3″ height. I would not recommend using a pot any taller than this without adding more height rows to the pattern, as the plant holder fits this size of pot perfectly.

To make your own plant holder, you will need cotton DK in the colour of your choice, I used white to match my living room, a 4.5mm crochet hook, a tape measure, a stitch marker, scissors and a yarn needle. You can easily make the plant holder bigger by using a bigger hook or thicker yarn, if you need to, or adding more height rows. At the end of round 3, the base of your plant holder should measure the same or just slightly smaller than the base of your pot.
