Ripped stitch on the channel
I was playing around with suspension on my home brewed hammock and managed to rip the stitches on the sewn channel on one end. While laying in the hammock the end stitch gave and the rest zippered out, which left me on the floor.
I had a length of 3mm doubled through the channel and hooked to my smc rings with a larks head. I think I made the mistake of only putting one single stitch line to hold the channel.
Is there a preferred stitch pattern, or minimum number of stitch lines/runs that I should do? I am thinking 2 runs on the new seam should be enough to hold it, assuming I get the edges taken care of so it doesn't zipper out again.
It is 1.9mm ripstop from Joann's. 10' long, single layer.
