Crochet toy hammock free pattern

Create this cute crochet toy hammock with this free crochet pattern! This hammock features basic crochet stitches and is a great way to organize your child’s toys.

Need more storage for your child’s stuffed animals? Make this super easy crochet toy storage net hammock.

This simple design works up very fast (you can make this is one afternoon) and simply hangs onto some plastic wall hooks in the corner of the room.

A great storage idea for plush toys and kid’s accessories.

This is an easy project, awesome toy organizer and great for leftover yarn.

Don’t worry, it will not fall down or fall off the hooks. I have had my son’s hammock up in the corner of a wall for over a month and it is nice and strong!

My finished hammock measures approx. 45″ from end to end on the longest side. 31″ inches on the other 2 sides and 22″ from the middle of the longest side to the front point.

You can easily change the size to whatever measurement you need.

Materials:

  • Lily Sugar n’ Cream 100% cotton yarn, I used a large cone 400g / 14oz, 616m / 674yd. I did not use the entire cone but a good amount of it. 
  • J hook, 6.00 mm
  • Blunt needle
  • plastic wall hooks

Abbreviations:

st(s)- stitch(es)

ch- chain

dc- double crochet

sp- space

sl st- slip stitch

Pattern:

Row 1: Ch 4, sl st in first ch to make a circle, turn.

Row 2: Ch 3, dc in circle, ch 1, dc in same circle, turn.

Row 3: Ch 3, dc in first sp, ch 1, dc in same sp, ch 1, repeat in next sp, turn.

Row 4: Ch 3, dc in first sp, ch 1, dc in same sp, ch 1, dc in second sp, ch 1, dc in next sp, ch 1, dc in last sp, ch 2, dc in same sp, turn.

**Continue with this pattern so the first and last space of each row has a dc, ch 1, dc and each space between them has 1 dc, ch 1.

The dc increases at the end of each row will help grow the triangle.

Continue with the pattern until you reach the desired length you like.

My finished hammock measures approx. 45″ from end to end on the longest side. 31″ inches on the other 2 sides and 22″ from the middle of the longest side to the front point.

I used a large cone 400g / 14oz, 616m / 674yd of Lily Sugar n’ Cream cotton yarn.

I did not use the entire cone but a good amount of it. 

Sl st in last stitch and fasten off.

Weave in end.

Put the hooks on your wall (3 total) in any corner and hang the ends over the hooks. 

You’re done!

Pin it for later!

  • Thank you Laura for sharing your pattern! I will definitely put this on my "Must Crochet" list. I wonder if this would work as well using nylon yarn. Blessings!

    • You're welcome! I have not used nylon with this pattern but the cotton has held up well :)

    • I would say about 300-350 yards, depending on how large you want to make it. Hope this helps!

  • Hi Laura!

    My daughter, Kathy wanted me to make this for her daughter. When I started it, I followed the pattern and was unable to get it going like yours. I was wondering if there was instructions that I missed.

    • After you make the ring in row 1 you are increasing in each row after by dc an extra dc at each end of the rows. This will make your triangle to continue to grow. Hope this helps!

    • Thank you! Mine measures approx 45" from end to end on the longest side. 31" inches on the other 2 sides and 22" from the middle of the longest side to the front point. Hope this helps!

  • Hi, I am having trouble hanging my hammock. How do you know how wide to space the hooks to make it sit right.. love your pattern though, thanks.

    • Hi, I stick one hook in the middle part of the wall then stretch the hammock to either side and place the other hammock hooks there. I think it is easiest if you start with the middle one first. Hope this helps!

    • There should be 2dc in the first st and last st on each row and a regular dc in each st in between. Hope this helps!
