Just made to whipped hammocks any suggestions on best way to attach whoopies.
larks-head your fixed loop behind the whipping.
I personally like tying a knot in the end of my gathered-end hammocks rather than whipping...easier to do and gives more material for the larks-head to grab.
So you just gather the material at the end and tie a overhand knot?

I spliced a locked brummel fix eye loop in the amsteel line first and whipped it afterwards. Works like a charm and takes 2 minutes.
There seems to be a way to make a fix eye loop splice with only one loose end available, the Mc Donald brummel
