  • 1 – 50 g ball each of DMC Natura XL, colors 41 (Lt. Pink) and 91 (Lt. Yellow)
  • “J” (6 mm) crochet hook
  • Yarn needle

At the end of each round, join with a sl st and ch 1.


Change colors as you wish, combining the colors in different width stripes. See the photo for a suggested stripe pattern.



With DMC Natura Just Cotton XL color 41,

Make a magic ring, ch 1.

Rnd 1: 6 sc in magic ring and pull the ring closed. (6 sts)

Rnd 2: 2 sc in each st of the previous round. (12 sts)

Rnd 3: (Sc in next st, 2 sc in next st) of the previous round. (18 sts)
Rnd 4: (Sc in next 2 sts, 2 sc in next st) of the previous round. (24 sts)
Rnd 5: (Sc in next 3 sts, 2 sc in next st) of the previous round. (30 sts)


Stop increasing when you reach the diameter of the bottom of your pot and adjust the total number of sts for rounds 6 – 19.


Rnd 6: 30 sc blo (30 sts)

Rnd 7-19: 30 sc (30 sts)


Continue to work in rounds until you reach the height of the top rim.


DO NOT CUT the yarn.


To create the hanger, chain the desired length. We worked 71.

Turn and sc in the second ch from the hook. Continue sc in each ch. (70 sts). Sl st to secure to the top round of the holder.


Using the Natura and yarn needle, sew the hanger to the opposite side.

Add an optional a tassel made of Natura XL to the bottom, as pictured.


We recommend you place the plant pot with a drainage hole inside a metallic pot without any hole to avoid drippage when watering.
