There is a good website with animated knots where you can learn to tie a double sheet bend and a bowline; two knots I use a lot. It is set up with different sections for boating knots, climbing knots, etc. You want to make sure whatever knot you use won't slip. http://www.animatedknots.com/
Can you post a pic of your double sheet bend on your hammock. I don't quite follow what you do with your hammock material.
This is the knot that HH uses. But he has holes put throught the hammock gathering to do it.
