Add to an already made hammock? I don't think you can do that. Its something you need to incorporate to the design when you make it.

The asym technique isn't hard. You just make a parallelogram.

You may be able to add a footbox yet. Cut out a right triangle and sew the two shorter sides to the hammock edge, starting half a foot or so from the foot end.

4. Thanks Don!!

6. If that is a right triangle (90 deg at ab) then C is the sq root of a squared + b squared. Thank you Pythagoras. ;-)
Now, how much should I add to make the foot box?

Check out the plans on the first post in this thread - they have plans for a gathered end with footbox. They use a 31 x 31 x 45 triangle.
