Cut 3 x 3 m pieces of string, and 3 x 3.5 m pieces of string.
Hold the 3-metre-long pieces together and fold them in half. Make a loop with the 3 pieces of string, so that you have 6 equal pieces of string. Use a piece of string or a clip to attach the loop to a table or something similar.
Tie a macramé hook around your waist with a piece of string, so that it is in front of your stomach with the hook facing up. Attach 2 pieces of string to the hook so that they are taut between the loop knot and the hook.
Tie the centre of a 3.5 m piece of string around the 2 strings (which are held taut in the hook) just under the loop knot. Knot 20 cm of half knots (image 2).
Thread a 25 mm wooden bead onto the 2 taut strings in the middle of the tied strap. Continue by tying 10 cm of square knots (images 3 and 4) under the bead. Leave a 4 cm space without knots and then tie a final square knot. Make two more identical straps.
Hold a pot centred beneath your three straps and measure the centre of the pot on the straps. Tie a square knot here with 2 strings from two different straps. Continue until all straps have been tied together with a square knot and enclose the pot. Then tie a square knot under the bottom of the pot with the 4 strings that were together in the strap from the start. Finish by tying one large knot with all of the strings just under the last square knot.
Thread a 10 mm wooden bead onto each piece of string, tie a knot and trim the ends.
