My balcony is a bit small so I had to buy a smaller hammock stand and retie the hammock knot in order for it to fit in the smaller stand, it looked approximately like the image I appended below.
I think the knot was made approximately like this, but I know there are steps missing and I hope someone here might know the name of the knot and the details of tying it.
- The hammock has a hem with small cutouts in it
- Go through the hem with the cordage (end bit)
- Drag out small loops in each cutout
- Go through the loops with the cordage (end bit)
- Beautiful hammock knot
I did not nail down step 5 very good so my knot is quite ugly.
Here is an image I found that looked similar to how it was...
Here is the prettier of the two knots I made...
