I'm thinking of going back to a continuous loop and carabiner to make things easier to attach.
Are you referencing the method shown in my instructions, which is the Warbonnet method, or some other whipping method? It's hard to imagine the ball created with the Warbonnet method not staying put no matter how fine the fabric. That's the beauty of it. Other methods allow you to make more adjustments to the shape of the hammock but are trickier to work with.
This message thead has gotten so long that it's not always clear if people are talking about the original instructions or other techniques. I'd like to encourage everyone to use this thread to discuss just the original instructions and slight variations to avoid confusion.
