rope hammock

Does anyone know how to go about making a rope hammock? I've seen the diy cloth hammocks, but I am more interested in a hammock that retains its shape when its not being used, like the rope ones do. If someone can create an instructable for this that would be amazing. Thanks

Try Janns Netcraft which sells material and instructions for tying several types of nets including hammocks. I personally have made several and have altered their pattern to make one longer and wider. It takes about 20 hours or more to make one yourself using their instructions.
Why doesn't anyone do an instructable on that type of hammock?? I'm more looking for how to do the knot at the top. Anyone know how to do that or what it's called?
It's called a 'clew' knot.

If someone gives me money for the approx. 1000 yards of rope it'd take to do this instructable, I'll do it.

I have been looking for exactly the same project but seems to be the first thing I couldn't find on the site. I am actually going to try to make on regardless and then make an instructables for it and try to make a hammock chair after that. Will keep you updated.
