Worked great for me, Thanks Knotty!
I did the stretch side retrofit to my 1.1 DL today. I sewed a tube and sewed that to the hammock edge and ran the shockcord through it.
Worked great...thanks Knotty.
Contemplating this mod for my WB Traveler, but the hem's narrow (<.5in). I think I may just fold the loose edge over an inch and sew to create a natural channel, then thread in the bungee. Seems more elegant than making and sewing on an external channel. Shouldn't take more than 30 minutes (20 to set up the sewing machine, 10 to do the actual work).

Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace without end to you.

Went with two-foot stretches on opposite sides--one near my head and one near my feet, to give me more of a cocoon feel than a whole-length stretch would do. Rather than sewing on a channels, I folded over the excess nylon twice and sewed the channel from the existing fabric. Will test it out this weekend.
