Knit Your Own Cargo Net in Any Color You Want!! Bonus Fruit Sling!

Hubs and I toured a highly overpriced Basecamp trailer by Airstream. I sure wish I could get in on the marketing that has made them such a status symbol. But I digress (and if I'm upsetting any airstream owners, I doubt it, since they don't read my blog AND their Basecamp is already equipped  with expensive cargo nets ALL OVER THE PLACE)


Which is exactly what made me think I should incorporate some cargo nets into my travel trailer! I mean, who doesn't want to model their RV around Airstream? They may be overpriced, but they are beautiful.

So, as a joke, I hung a cargo net over my side of the bed which happens to be under a bunk.

Turns out cargo nets are really helpful! So, not so much of a joke!



I started looking for an attractive cargo net. Guess what, they come in black ... and black ... and oh yes, black!

So I designed a REALLY easy knitting pattern to make my own cargo net. How easy, you ask? Well, if you can knit, you can make a cargo net. You don't even have to purl unless you want to.

How To Make A Pretty Fruit and Vegetable Sling

The first takes a little more knowledge of knitting. If you want a complete beginner instructions, scroll down to #2.


This is a pattern I made that has a lot of holes. I'm sure it has a name but I don't know it and I spend way too much time writing these blog posts as it is, so if you want to know the name you'll have to look for it yourself.

It not only makes a nice cargo net, but you can make a string bag or even a snazzy cargo net with it too! I wrote a blog post on the cargo net here

I actually have two ways to make a Fruit Vegetable Sling

Ok, I know this is not an attractive photo. But I have spent as much time as I have to write the post LOL ... so the photos are really basic. Maybe someday I'll come back and take some really neat photos but for now, this will give you an idea of what it will look like. Of course, yours will look MUCH BETTER because you will have something besides an old onion to put in it.

This is the brand (but not the color) I used - but I recommend you get it at a local store for $10 or less. Right now, it's $8 at Walmart.

I just bought this - it's 2x as effective, super quiet, lightweight. It's doing a great job! It has made a noticeable difference in the comfort level of our rv.
