Someone who is experienced at crochet and has mastered the basic single and triple crochet stitches can quickly stitch up a climbing net for children. A strong twine is essential for this net, which should be securely attached to a sturdy wall or tree and placed over a soft mattress for maximum safety. This climbing net would be a great addition to a garden play area or a children's playroom and will teach small children dexterity while providing exercise.
