Venus, I live in the desert too but I still think I will make myself one of these in the future. I have a little wall space that could stand to be used for storage.

Prototype #2: 67" x 12" I spaced it 65" apart for this photo. LOTS of stretch. I think it was stretchier than the other because I just used 2 strands of the chenille sweater rather than 1 strand chenille, 1 strand #10 cotton thread.


I also upped it to 18dc/row instead of just 15 like Belladune suggested, though the other was just 15 all the way and this one started as 12 at the D-ring and upped to 18 at about row 12 (I think).
More thoughts?

I like the shape of that one better.  though now maybe it's a bit long? the width seems good.  so... when do we get a pattern?  ;P

Here's #3!

In the yellow corner... weighing in at 22 inches....
She wants this one and the long one, or so she says.

Bella, you really want a pattern?! I could find my notes, but it's really pretty simple I promise.

so long as it's simple and a quick crochet, I'd love a pattern.

I agree, I love the corner hammock. Looks like the stitching is bigger. I like! Mebbe I will make one and blamm to the dust!  Tongue

And the hammocks in their new home, stuffed with fiber!

Corner hammock with prefelts and a bag that I need to reorganize


Big hammock with various fibers, they also need to be reorganized. Fiber is fluffy, so it isn't anywhere near as much mass as it looks....


Thanks, jexxican!

Yay! Happy new home! I'm so glad you seem to like them.
Pattern for the small flat wall:
I used some thin chenille yarn stolen from a sweater and some #10 cotton thread together. I think if I had done this witht he bigger hammock it would have worked a lot better.
On a D-ring, using hook D, 15 sc
Rows 2-5 Hook E -15 sc
Rows 6-8 Hook F - 15 sc
Rows 9-10 15(ch1, sc1)
Row 11 ch1, 14(sc, ch2), sc
Rows 12-17 15(ch2, dc)
Rows 18-23 Hook G 15(ch2, dc)
Rows 24-27 Hook H 15(ch2, dc)
Rows 28-47 Hook I 15(ch2, dc)
Basically from here on you just work it backwards again:
Rows 48-51 Hook H 15(ch2, dc)
Rows 52-57 Hook G 15(ch2, dc)
Rows 58-63 Hook F 15(ch2, dc)
Row 64 ch1, 14 (sc, ch2), sc
Rows 65-66 15(ch1, sc1)
Rows 67-69 15sc
Rows 70-73 Hook E 15sc
Row 74 D Hook working on another D ring at same time as on Row 73 15sc

How's that? I should copy it to the first post of this, eh? Still want the longer one? That was started at 12 on the D-ring and progressed to 18 in the middle so it is a bit different. It's also not on my desk right now and I also happen to be a little delirious right now so...

Awesome idea! I'm going to make a couple of these for my dorm, those white walls need all the color they can get and I need more storage space Cheesy
