    Check out how Hangnout does his endcaps. Around 8 minutes in.




    And this post shows how the end of the hammock looks.

    I had concerns about the end caps as well when I made my first bridge hammock (others will follow). I wanted the hammock body "hanging" so I could see/measure the shape needed for the caps.

    Here's my posting with photos that will help somewhat to explain the steps below...

    1. Roll hem the ends.
    2. "Roll hem" the long sides around the webbing.
    3. Fold the webbing ends back and sew to make loops at each corner.
    4. Make amsteel dog bones and larks head to the corner webbing loops.
    5. Attach suspension to dog bone triangles with Dutch biners.
    6. Insert spreader bars in the amsteel larks heads.
    7. Hang and enjoy.

    I added the end caps later.
