FO Friday – Granny toy hammock

We’re ready to move Little Chick’s crib out of her room.  She hasn’t slept in it for a couple of months – and even for weeks before that it was used more for a threat if she didn’t stay in bed.  Now we just need to find some time to move it and get the room reorganized.  The one piece that is missing is a spot to put all the toys that were being stored in her crib.  It’s nice and deep and then Finley can’t get to the stuffed animals.  Great reason to keep it in there right? 🙂

I decided she needed a toy hammock we could hang from the wall.  I looked for pattern for one but all the patterns I found weren’t quite what I wanted.  I wanted it so it didn’t have big holes for good support and with a reinforced edge, also for support.  Since I couldn’t find one, I did what I’ve done a lot lately … I designed my own.  This is how it turned out:

I played with a couple of different concepts, but in the end this is basically a granny-square type stitch done in a triangle.  You know what else is triangle shaped?  Shawls.  That’s what first gave me the inspiration.

The great thing is that this used up an entire skein of yarn so there is one less in my closet!  I might have had enough to do the edge in the same color – it would have been close.  But I wanted a slight contrast.

I love how this turned out.  Little Chick’s room has grey carpeting so this should be a great addition without necessarily making it the focus.  Just what I wanted.

I hope to get the pattern finalized and published soon.
