    Minus your hems is 8'-10", give or take. Set up your hammock and measure before you cut.

    Personally, I prefer a full coverage net, I don't want a chance skeeters can find their way in. Maybe a full sock with zipper entry?

    Instead of the shock cord closure you could sew on omni tape or velcro.

    Knotty you are right about the diagonal bit. I was trying to find a way to get the most out of 54" in. wide noseeum and was having a hard time. Also i didnt want to waste alot of fabric cutting and resewing.

    One thing i forgot to mention is that this requires a ridgeline. Also with this design you can add a zipper/velcro to the bottom or just seal up the bottom and add a zipper to the front of it.
