Has anyone ever knit a hammock? I know I saw a pattern a long time ago, but I had a lot of things OTN at the time and so I didn't try it. I own a hammock, but its a handmade one from Ecuador, and its getting slightly stretched and I'm paranoid about ruining it. I don't want one of the ones that has a bar at either end - they aren't nearly as comfy as the "banana-shaped" ones. I can't remember what they are officially called. Anyways, do you think that if I used Red Heart SS and did a double strand in really big, loose guage it would be strong enough? I don't have the patience to knit anything that big in tight guage, nor the money to use high quality rope or other fiber. For the end pieces I'd use something stronger, though.
