The Toy Hammock really brightens up a dark corner of Niamh's room.

You can buy plain white mesh nets for stuffed animals in any baby store -- but this one is about half of the price and can be made to coordinate with the playroom decor, or in your kid's favorite color!


  • 4 balls Lily Sugar'n Cream in shade 02741 Playtime (appropriately enough!), or about 380 yards of worsted weight cotton yarn of your choice
  • pair of size 8 US (5 mm) knitting needles
  • Crochet hook, tape measure, yarn needle


3.33 sttiches and 5.33 rows to 1 inch in Lace Mesh Stitch.


Approximately 55 inches wide by 27 inches high, unstretched.
