Great question! I am about to make my next hammock and have been agonizing over this. In the past, I have done my ends Warbonnet style (starts with a small channel but ends up whipped). My Switchback, which is my most comfortable hammock, runs the suspension lines through a large, open channel (with lots of stitching).
The Warbonnet style is easy but I'm wondering if the large channel is part of the magic of the Switchback's comfort.
Syb, how many lines of stitching do you use on your channels? And do you double over the fabric, or what? Inquiring minds want to know.
