Those look easy and cool, but won't help my knot skills
Interesting, but how does the looped end that runs down the ridgeline stay attached to the ridgeline?
It doesn't. The UC shockcord goes up over the ridge-line, the cord just positions the shockcord in the right place (in relation to the length of the hammock), it is held by tension alongside/parrallel to the ridge-line whether you have bugnet or not.
