I could have gone 3.5 yards but then I'd have to get a bigger tarp. Last week I made a hammock out of 2 yds of free fabric the wife got somewhere. I was hoping it would be long enough for my 8 yr old. It wasn't, but it is a good length for my 4 yr old. So I figured 3 yds would be enough for the 8 yr old. I got it home and realized finished size would be 2 inches longer and 4 inches wider than my current hammock so instead of cutting any off I just sewed it up. I haven't tried to hang it yet. It's an oz lighter and shouldn't stretch as much as my store bought Travel Hammock.
