Begin your plant hanger by tying a “lark’s head” knot that attaches the long cords to a metal ring.
Cut four 12-ft-long pieces of clothesline. (For a longer hanger, start with longer pieces.) Hold the ends together, fold the bunch in the middle to form a collection of loops, and pass the loops through a 2-inch ring. Pull the long ends through the loops while holding the ring, adjust the lines until they lay flat, and pull the ends tight to form a lark's head knot.
Now, it’s time to increase the number of lines beyond the eight you created in the previous section. To do that, you’ll attach lines using a special version of a square knot.
From the clothesline, cut four 6-foot pieces. (Again, a longer hanger calls for longer pieces. It's better to have lines too long than too short.) Select two pieces of line hanging from the ring and measure 12 inches down from the lark's head knot on those pieces. There, tie on a centered 6-foot piece of clothesline using an overhand knot. For this overhand knot, however, note how the top of the loop passes behind the two long lines being bound together, but the strands at the bottom are separated by the long lines.
