  • an old towel you can fold in half or into a third (like I did), make sure you use one that will look ok in your living room if you plan on hanging it in plain sight
  • some zpagetti yarn or other yarn that is strong enough to hold the whole thing (including your cat) up
  • crochet hook
  • a pair of scissors (a knife is optional)
  • a big comb for making the tassels, but you could just as easily use your hands
  • elastic bands for the tassels
  • coffee table you can hang the hammock from
  • if you can’t attach the hammock to something underneath the table, you will have to put 4 sufficiently strong hooks into the bottom of your table or into the sides of its legs
