I just got my DIY Hammock supplies from Backwoods Daydreamer, and I am seeking information. It will be a gathered end hammock approx. 11' long and about 60" wide. I have read and seen on Youtube that to be able to see out of your hammock you should Cat-Cut the sides.

What is a good depth to Cat-Cut?

I also what is the best method to ease the calf pressure problem?

Any help/advise would be appreciated.
