Now you have 4 long chains that you have to fashion into the hanger.
Thread all 4 chains through the key ring and tie a knot to secure the ring in
the position you want.
Now you have to secure the ends. I used a little of my experience with macrame
to finish the ends and I hope I can explain what I did.
You have the plant hanger, the handles and the key ring tied to it for hanging.
BUT, you have the 4 strands or chains hanging loosely. I worked what I remembered
as macrame knots but I didn't work them correctly. Finish your hanger with square
knots like on the ones on this page:
To help you visualize how I did my knots, look at
the picture for the square knot... I took the red strand behind all 3 remaining
strands and made a loop. Then I brought the tail of the red strand around the
remaining 3 strands and put it back through the loop I had made and then tightened
the knot. You can work the knots in any fashion... the point is to secure the
When the chained strands are worked in use your crochet hook to weave the
yarn tails into the work and trim the excess.
Wrap all 3 strands around a 12" ruler to make fringe. Cut on one end only...
each strand will be 24" long. Use as many strands as you like to make the
fringe. Secure fringe through center of R1 as in photo.
Insert bowl with your plant into the hanger.
