I found a great deal recently on some ripstop nylon (.99 a yard x 60"w) So I bought enough to make a couple hammocks for the wife and kid. I gathered the ends of the material and created a loop with it. I then used sewn 1/2" tubular webbing and basically tied a sheep shank. I hooked it to my ENO suspension and laid in it. The area down the center of the hammock is more taut while the sides seem to droop. I dissassembled the rig, and this time, i pulled the edges up to take the slack out to the sides. This helped only marginally, but the issue remained.
I did some preliminary searches on making a gathered end hammock, but I really didn't find anything to life the veil on my ignorance.
What am I doing wrong?
