Crocheted Hammocks

Want a hammock for your porch, but can’t find one that suits your taste? Why not make your own?

An outdoor area is never complete without a place to sit and relax. A hammock is one of your best options. It’s a great place to relax and take a nap. Installing a hammock doesn’t require a lot of tools, and moving it to a different location is very easy.

DIY Crocheted Hammock

Making this particular hammock involves knotting of strings or cords into patterns called macrame. You can easily match this hammock with your outdoor area as there are many patterns and colors to choose from. You can also paint the dowels to match the color of the hammock’s cords.
