Small Toy Hammock

Organize your child’s small toys with this nifty crochet toy hammock. It works up quickly and easily and makes for a great stashbuster pattern for leftover yarn. Or, make it as a baby shower gift along with some cute stuffies.

As you can see, I tied mine to the end of the Pack ‘n Play, but it’ll work just as well under a shelf, in a corner or anywhere else you like. It’s a great way to teach your kids to keep his/her toys organized

The toy storage hammock is not just great for stuffies, but it can be used to store all kinds of toys and kid’s accessories.

It is a simple design, perfect for beginners and seasoned crocheters.

Finished Size

The finished measurements are approximately 21″ by 13″. It seems small, but it will stretch out a bit once you start filling it with toys.

The pattern is given in one size, but in a simple multiple of two, you can crochet this to any length that you need.

The Yarn

Red Heart Super Saver yarn is the perfect yarn for this free crochet pattern! It is not only durable, but it washes well, and is readily available at most yarn stores.

With that said, cotton yarn would work just as well!
