Find some suitable trees, hang the hammock, and relax...or fake relaxing, like my son in the picture.
Step 6: Marking for Weaving
The important thing to remember before starting to weave is that the side facing up is the bottom. Take a ruler and mark where the tape edges go on the outer two loops of each side of the hammock. To duplicate my pattern, start on the outside with a mark about 2" from the end, then make a mark every 7.5". Move to the inside loop and make a mark 5.75" from the end, then make marks every 7.5" inches.
