Lay the fabric yarn flat on the floor and cut into eight 1m lengths. Take all eight strands and tie into one large knot, approximately 2 inches from one end. At this point, we recommend suspending the knot from a coat hanger and working with the strands hanging down, rather than on a flat surface, so it’s easier to see where you are knotting. Divide the strands into pairs so you have four groupings of two. Take one strand from each neighbouring group and knot together about 2 inches from the large knot. Repeat all the way around. Repeat the above step to create a second row of knots, 2 inches above the previous. Repeat until you have enough rows to stretch over your plant pot (we had three rows of knots for a 13cm diameter pot). Place your container into the centre of the net, so the bottom rests on the large central knot. Fill the pot with your chosen plant and bunch together all the yarn strands, then hang from a hook on the wall to display.
