I’m so excited for Macrochet Mini Planter MAL to start tomorrow!! It is designed by Dana Roush Hogan of Crochet for Days. Dana has a Facebook Group, a Blog, a YouTube channel and a Ravelry and Etsy Store. You’ll be able to find ALL of her links on Linktr.ee, HERE.
Dana lives with her husband Caleb and son Emeric in the mountains of NC. When she’s not crocheting, she’s dreaming about crocheting and making plans for new designs. She also enjoys reading, singing, painting, and spending time with her church family.
She was inspired to create this awesome mini planter because she saw a macrame plant hanger that she loved. She just KNEW that she could make something similar using crochet. And, thankfully for us, she wasn’t wrong!!! Below you will find a few pictures of the Macrochet Mini Planter she made. It’s also inspired several other wall hangings, planter, etc……some of which are published, some are in testing and some are still waiting to be realized! I can wait to see what’s next!
Here’s a little information……Have a read through and gather your supplies. The pattern will be released in the wee hours of the morning so our friends over the pond can get an early start…..after they’ve had their morning coffee or tea, of course.
