    If you are going to remove the fabric I would advise you to undo the stitching on the seams joining the panels. That way you may save yourself a whole lot of trouble. I would not suggest cutting with pinking shears, especially if you are going to roll the hem. The hem will prevent fraying. But the center panel just might run salvage to salvage giving you finished edges with no addition trouble. Plus that way if you chose to reattach the panels for one reason or another it would be much easier to do.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    I've got an ENO double. It's a lounging hammock, used as often as a chair as it is a nap facilitating vehicle. For overnight stuff I use other hammocks. No scissors shall touch this ENO.

    That said, I am imaging that what others would cut would leave the hammock asymmetric, trim the wall of fabric (asymmetrically) when you lay on a diagonal.

    Others?

    The extra material I cut off mine adds up to 15 inches so it ends up still being 10 inches wider than a single nest.

    I find 65 inches to be just right for my comfort.

    I made a cut in the extra material on both sides of mine, about were the top of my shoulders would be, then added several velcro tabs so I could fold the long edges over me & secure them for added warmth.

    I folded & hemmed the cuts but you might get away w/ cutting it w/ a hot knife, running a lighter along the cut, or putting liquid seam sealer along it if you don't have a sewing machine. But I personally wouldn't mess w/ the factory seam unless you know just what you're doing.

    What about just rolling the extra and holding it with a clothes pin or one of those clips you hold stacks of paper with? Best of both worlds.

    If there is no chance of rain, I flop the extra material and attach it to the other side with a couple of small clips (sort of like Slowhikes mod.) I find this gives me a bit of a tent like feel and staves off any morning dew. Thus I don't need a tarp on non-rainy days.

    If all you want is to keep the material out your face try this, although I would use shock cord rather than guy line so swing doesn't tear the hammock.
