    Thank You!

    Simple instructions. Simple hammock. Simply awesome. 2 down, 28 to go. Got a scout troop anxious to give this a try.

    Very nice. I did mine differently but like your method better. I will definitely change mine.
    Thanks.

    I just made my first GEH. I like the way it lays much more than a stitched end with a loop. Comfy. Although I did find out that the next thing I need to make is an underquilt. 17f is cold as heck when you have nothing under you!

    I'm getting ready for an overnight trip with the scouts next weekend and when taking my DIY gathered end hammock off of my turtle dog stand I noticed that I had a small pull in the fabric. Should I be concerned about this? Any repair that I could/should do? I'm guessing that it was a rogue thorn that caught it at some point. I was thinking that if I do anything it would probably be a small piece of duct tape. Any thoughts?

    where is the pull located? Ripstop doesn't always "stop"!

    It's about 18" from the foot end, roughly in the middle. I'll see if I can snap a pic tonight.

    The pull. It is across the hammock, roughly in the middle about 14" from the foot end. I think I'll just leave it.



    Lower angle to show pull

    Tenacious tape on both sides, after applying seam sealer to the tear (and let it cure).

    Just be careful - my boney heels would enlarge that tear when I shift around.

    Great how-to Knotty. I have wanted to get into hammock camping buy didn't want to spend the $50+ on a ENO just to try it out. Plus I love DIY. Any ideas on anywhere else to get the rip stop? My Walmart doesn't have it and its $6.99 per yard at Joann's!
