I am trying to find a pattern for the asymmetrical Hennessy hammock. Anyone know where I can find it?
I want to make a Hennessy style hammock but without the bug netting and I don't want to cut up my HH (just yet).Feb 14, 2007 at 12:04 pm #1378483

I cannot seem to locate the link but the Hennessey ASM is patented and the description and illustrations of how it is made are located on the US Patent & Trademark Office web site. I have the PDF document and the JPEGs I could email you if you cannot find it.Feb 14, 2007 at 12:44 pm #1378492

Dale-What is the patent number?Feb 15, 2007 at 6:06 am #1378609
You can see the patent here:
I always have problems displaying the pics on the Patent site.
I have a printed copy of the patent at home. I have not read it in detail but I don't really see and dimensions that I can use. The patent also shows several different asymmetrical shapes but it did not say which one is used for the current Hennessy hammocks.Feb 15, 2007 at 6:08 am #1378610
If you have the patent.pdf you could send me, that would be great.

I'd be interested in this pattern as well. I am trying to make hammocks for the kids and I for our spring trip!
you can email them to cogden2002 at hotmail dot comFeb 26, 2007 at 5:45 pm #1380168

I found the following image…
It was on the Kick Ass Quilts website…
You may be able to use the measurements as a rough estimate.Mar 1, 2007 at 10:46 am #1380583
I made a prototype hennessy hammock and so far so good! Off to try it with the real deal now! I made my prototype out of a bed sheet!
It really wasn't all that difficult. Once I have the real deal done, I will be posting pictures!Mar 2, 2007 at 6:00 am #1380700
I spent a couple of days working on a prototype. Here is what I came up with:
Also here are some pictures of a disassembled Hennessy:
The Hennessy is a big rectangle just like the Speer Hammocks with a few unique techniques in putting it together. The tie out points and the bug netting are what give it it's asymm shape.Mar 2, 2007 at 6:09 am #1380701
