Yes, you're visualizing what I use correctly. But
my ropes aren't tied together at the ends. The
hammock rope (actually more like 3/8-inch tubular
webbing) runs through the casing. I take both ends
through whatever ring or loop is on my tree rope.
The ring does provide a drip-stopping spot. I also
carry about 12 inches of cotton cord tied onto
each hammock rope for use as drip cords.

I was thinking about sewing a casing at one end,
then passing the
support rope through it and tieing the rope back
to itself above the
hammock. So basically the rope has a loop tied
into it, with the
hammock attached inside the loop. Therefore, the
knot is just above
the hammock, which will stop drips from travelling
down the line.
Maybe I have the wrong idea of what a casing is?
Is that not how it
