When I began this project, all I knew for sure was that I absolutely love the mustard yellow cording. Other than that, I had no idea what I was going to make. I just kept knotting and experimenting, and the end result is quite pretty. A triple macrame plant hanger. I also adore the wooden pole I decoupaged in Rifle Paper Company napkins (tutorial coming next week). This wall hanging definitely has a romantic boho vibe!

getting started

Cut 30 pieces of rope, each measuring 14 feet long. Wrap a small piece of masking tape around each end of rope to prevent fraying while weaving the design. Next, tie each piece to the wooden pole using a Lark’s Head Knot. 

You now have 30 Lark’s Head Knots tied onto the pole and 60 individual cords hanging. To follow the instructions correctly, you need to understand the following key. While knotting, try to keep each horizontal row even, and always go from left to right. To make a proper Square Knot, see the tutorial here.

plant hanger - segment 1

The first 6 Lark’s Head Knots (the first 12 individual cords) will be used to form the plant hanger in the first segment. Row 1 – start with 1st cord: 3K  (starting with 1st individual cord from the left, tie 3 Square Knots)

Row 2 – start with 3rd cord: 2K (starting with 3rd individual cord from the left, tie 2 Square Knots)Row 3 – start with 1st cord: 3KRow 4 – start with 3rd cord: 2KRow 5 – using the first 4 cords: 1 HALF SQUARE SPIRAL KNOT* (The length of this knot is 20 ties.) See a video tutorial for this knot on my blog.

Row 5 – now using the next 4 cords: 1 HALF SQUARE SPIRAL KNOT (The length of this knot is 20 ties.)Row 5 – using the last 4 cords: 1 HALF SQUARE SPIRAL KNOT (The length of this knot is 20 ties.)

Row 6 – start with the 3rd cord from left: 2K, S2Row 7 – start with the 1st cord from left: 3KRow 8 – start with 3rd cord: 3K (As you tie the 3rd Square Knot, a circular pocket will start to form.)

Row 9 – below the last row of knows, make a row of Alternating Square KnotsAn inch below the last row, make a Wrapped Knot. The first segment is now complete.
