I was contemplating making a small hammock (despite what I posted the other day - and only because she asked so cute) in fancy colors (her request) for my daughter who is 4.
I read it's you height, (or the kid's,) plus 2' plus 24" for knots plus 3" for hem. But if it's for a kid, I'd sure make it bigger than that if you want her to use it more than one season. Big hammock is much better than one that's too small...
That and her friend is going to want to get in there with her. Make it roomy
