Here’s a Knitting Project you’ll love and it’s perfect for the kids! Who wouldn’t want their own Knitted Hanging Chair ..
This knitted Cocoon Hanging Seat is a wonderful addition to your indoor and outdoor living. You can hang it in your child’s room and set up a reading corner for them. It’s a great way to give them privacy and encourage them to have some alone time.
They will love climbing in and out of the Cocoon, and how comfy do you think it is in there! You may even walk in to find your cat snuggled up in a nice sunny spot! We love the stripes and you could even make it in favorite football colors!
If you love to knit, this Cocoon Hanging Seat comes with FREE pattern and is an easy diy you’ll love to try. It is approximately 28″ wide and 82″ in height, the length is extendable with added knitted loops. The hemisphere-shaped seat portion is knitted with garter stitch short row method. After the round bottom is done, pick up stitches along the edge to knit the tapered back of the seat and work all the way up.
Finish off the seat with a nice border on the opening and a loop at the top. You can find all the details on knitting this Cocoon Hanging Seat outlined in the link. It has a full tutorial with excellent step by step photos for you to follow.
The Blogger says that she hangs the Knitted Cocoon just above the floor level so that her son is able to climb in and out nice and easily. She also suggests that it is safer at the lower height. We all know what boys are like and it’s better to be safe than sorry! She also includes a warning that we have included below.
If you would prefer to buy one, we have included one below that is a very good price point and will do the job. All you need to do is buy the heavy duty hanger
We’ve also included a link to a Macrame Hanging Hammock so be sure to scroll our page and pin your favorites! – Warning: For safety precaution to avoid serious injury, please make sure the ceiling support and hook are strong enough to hold the total weight of the chair and the child that sits in.
