An estimate of rope required is as follows:

For hanging a planter 12″ (1 foot) higher from the pot’s top surface, you will need 60″ (5 feet) of rope. Cut and make a knot to join the ends. This is an estimate because exact measurements depend on the size of the pot.

7. Focus your attention on loops A and B.

8. Bring loop A under B such that they switch positions.

9. Now hold loop A (do this on both the sides) and pull it in opposite directions on both sides.
