Step 3: Tying the rope.

cut the rope in half, and tie each piece to the ends of the sheet using the sheet-bend knot.   http://www.animatedknots.com/sheetbend/index.php  will show you how, if you don't know.

Step 4: Finishing

the last step: tie to a tree and relax.
Note- it may look incredibly thin, but it will widen when your in it.

nice, simple.

i dunno if you put a rock in the sheet before you tied the sheetbend around it, but if you didn't that will make it much stronger.
thanks for the instructable. i will definitely do this tomorrow my only concern is the weight limit. will a twin size support 120 pounds?
