I apologize for not finding this with a search. I want to make a hammock and am looking for instructions on whipping the end, rather than gather.

If you make a tablecloth hammock (I assume this is one big rectangle with the ends gathered or whipped), do you still lay in it aysm?

I'm not sure how makers make a hammock left or right lay, but I know that would result in a flatter hang.

Thanks for the great help and advice! You folks are the greatest.
