How To Crochet The Crochet Fruit Hammock

The crochet fruit hammock is crocheted back and forth in rows creating a net rectangle with a lovely lace stitch pattern.

When the crocheted rectangle is finished, you’ll start attaching the wooden rings to the ends of the hammock.

The final touch is to attach the beads with the small tassel like decor.

Multiple Ways to Use the Crochet Fruit Hammock

While the crochet fruit hammock can be used as a fruit basket for fresh fruit like apples, oranges or a lonely little banana, there’s more ways to use it.

Hang the crochet hammock in the bathroom and use it for hand towels, extra toilet paper or even toiletry.

It’s also a great mini hammock that will work well as a small toy hammock.

There’s no limit to the various uses for these little mini hammocks.

How Long Does It Take To Crochet That?

How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?

Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.

It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.

All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.

Calculate how long it takes to crochet that.

Crochet Pattern Notes

  • This crochet pattern is written in US terms.
  • All measurements given are unblocked.
  • Note that measurements are given as exact as possible. But crochet tension & technique might give variations in the result, that changes from person to person.
  • Read pattern instructions carefully before beginning to make sure you understand everything. It might save you hours frogging your work & crocheting it again!
  • Make a swatch that measure at least 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4 inches using the stitch the gauge is given for. If your swatch matches the gauge, you’re good to go. If the gauge is wrong, you might need to change your hook. Go up in crochet hook size if your stitches are smaller & go down in crochet hook size if your stitches are bigger. Learn more about testing gauge.
  • Check yarn info if you want to find an alternative or test your yarn against the gauge. Learn more about substituting yarn.
  • This pattern is written for 1 size, however size adjustments are suggested under the heading “Size & Measurements”.
  • At the end of each row, the stitch count is given in parenthesis.

  • To attach the ring, you will need to pull the skein through the wooden ring each time.
