    Anyone recognize this soft shackle?

    I broke one of my soft shackles, due to my kid swinging the hammock back and forth and abrading it against a metal part of his bed (from which it was hung at the time). I need to make a new one, and I'd prefer it to match the existing good one, but it's been so long I don't remember which guide I used to make it. Does anyone recognize this: 20220305_165205.jpg

    Additionally, I think maybe I used one of the guides for Amsteel Blue and adapted it for Dynaglide (using recommended taper lengths and all that).

    Although it may not be exactly the same, the Tacblades tutorial mentioned above is great. He also made a really amazing top quilt. His tutorials really helped with my DIY hammock projects.

    Yes. I have made a few that are very similar if not identical. Much easier than a button knot.

    But those button knots are so pretty!
    Q: Does it get any better than kayak camping?
