    I'm still well under, and I got it. That was the third song I put on my iPod... right after "Can't Touch This" and "Ice Ice Baby"...

    Definitely needs to be playing in the background whilst making a hammock.

    He just didn't want to admit it. Gotta have standards...at least about what to admit in public...

    I like them that way

    <sigh> you guys are impossible.

    I actually like the sides to be a little tight. It helps keep my quilt, pillow, etc. in the hammock.

    Oh man, this makes sense and sounds reasonable as to why my diy tablecloth has tight edges. although I may not change anything, is mighty comfy and the tight edges help keep things in...food for thought though!

    P.S. I am only 27 and I know if the Devo , but then again I feel like I am from the wrong generation hehe

    I think I am missing something. I have rejected my three Hennessy's with side zips, because they are exceedingly difficult for me to get out of, same problem with my Mac. I almost need a block and tackle to get out. I get bloody awful charlie horses in my legs and hips while I am trying to exit. I thought it had to do with my height and the deepness of the hammocks.

    My Green Hornet I purchased form another member, works great for me, no nasty hard edge, significantly easier to exit from, no charlie horses upon exiting.

    So the problem is in the way the hammock ends are wrapped? I thought about working on the ridge line of my netless Safari, however, I just sort of abandoned it, because I just can not exit the darned thing.

    I am five feet almost two inches tall, so I thought that was part of the problem. Now, maybe not.

    DIY hammock tight edge Problem

    The edge tension is related to the difference in the length of the material comparing the edges to the center where you lay.

    If you start with a rectangle piece of material and you gather/whip in a straight line across each end then the measurement along the material from whipping-to-whipping will be equal measuring along the edges and measuring down the center.

    However, if you gather/whip so that more of the edges protrude past the whipping than the center material, you effectively "shorten" the material along each edge. When it hangs in an arc, the edges will be higher/tighter than the center.

    You can do the same thing with a channel-end hammock by starting with material that's not rectangular - say the edges are a few inches shorter than the center so there's an arc in the end channel.
