I don’t know why I keep daydreaming about hammocks lately. I’ve lived in apartment for more than six years and it’s been longer than that since I’ve had a hammock of my own. And San Francisco’s summer weather is more conducive to making you think of scarves and shawls, not sprawling in the sunshine we rarely have. Nevertheless, I’ve got hammocks on the brain so I thought I’d hunt down a roundup of crocheted hammocks worth taking a rest in!
This hammock sold by Etsy’s hamanica is made from cotton thread. This store has a wide selection of crochet hammocks to check out. It says on Etsy that “each hammock is a unique piece made by hand directly by our collective of talented craftsmen in the city of Masaya, Nicaragua.”

I can’t decide if I’m partial to natural cream colored crochet hammocks or super brightly colored multicolor hammocks or just ones that use a single bright color like this green one does. What do you like?
This is a cotton hammock with crochet detailing sold on Etsy by ElietsyCorner.
I spotted this one on Depends What Day It Is. I did a Google Image Search that turned up multiple blogs that have posted it but I haven’t been able to find who the original source is. The crochet is pretty basic but it just looks so cozy because of the setting!
Have any of you crocheted a full-size adult hammock? Any tips?
