Heya, I'm bussy knotting a hammock using the traditional fishnet method using a netting needle and a gauge stick but can't quite get the hang of it. I've found loads of instructions on everything I need to know except one thing.
Often when I pull the knot taught my sheet bend tightens incorrectly. Hard to explain so here's an illustration of what happens:
I somehow can't find any videos of someone actually knotting some net using a gauge stick, so I don't know the technique do pull it taught and have the knot settle correctly. Can anyone point me to a video, or give some detailed instructions on how to hold the work and how to tighten the knot correctly?
