    Knotty mod: which direction?

    I feel stupid for asking, but...
    I have a DL BIAS WWM with knotty mods.
    I haven't used it in a while and can't remember if it is head left/feet right or vice versa.
    I can hang it either way by simply flipping it over and disconnecting one of the whoopies to run the fixed RL over and then reconnecting.

    There has to be some difference or they wouldn't specify when ordering, correct?

    Here it is currently with head left/feet right.

    head left/feet right is the usual direction for a knotty mod.
    Everyone ought to believe in something....I believe I'll go set up the hammock!

    If it is a double layer hammock then I don't think that is should be flipped over/ reversed because the layer that was intended to be the bottom layer would presumably have been cut larger. But if it a single layer hammock then flipping/ reversing should work just fine

    FLIP IT! Live dangerously! Go out on a limb! Set yourself free!!
    Seriously, try it both ways and go with what feels best to you, or change up for variety. It's all good!

    It is a double layer. That makes sense that the outer layer would be cut larger. I will see if I can figure out which is supposed to be outer layer.

    The way we construct these, it shouldn't matter if you flip it or not. But FWIW, the hem is turned toward the inside.
    It'll be alright Friday!
