Nice.  Okay, how did you make that.  Is there any obscure net-making tricks I don`t know yet Wink


Edit:  Followed the previous links and found tubular nets.

No secret at all.  
I do not have a step by step tutorial  but here is how I made the net.
I used the grommet start  http://pineapple.myfunforum.org/about1715.html  adjusted to fit my water bottle. I used a 1' wide gauge.  I made 7 loops which with the drop knot made 8 loops (meshes) around.
I tied 12 rows which was sufficient to cover my water bottle.
To make the handle I started tying again but only tied into the first 3 meshes (leaving 4)
After 7 rows I finished it the same way I finished the modification to the net bag discussed here http://slinging.org/forum/YaBB.pl?num=1360798615/all-0  step #4.

The final knot was tied into the bag rather than into the handle as shown in the example. Obviously tie into only one mesh at a time when tying into the body of the net.

 
Works well for my cell phone as well

...

There are over a dozen net making related topics discussed here
http://pineapple.myfunforum.org/index.php?c=7  You might want to tr the chain start (under instructions) for tubular netting and try one of the many ways listed to finish a net.  Cheeers, Tony

You have one dinosaur of a cell phone, but I am one to talk. I have no love for modern stuff, except computers and the internet. And paracord, etc.
Oh, and thanks for the tutorials, I love them. Site is now one of my bookmarks.
My cell phone- super cheap old thing, but dependable and useful. Its a flip-phone. I like it.
It is missing most of the keypad, I just press the keypad domes after licking me fingers. works good.

I bought my cell phone in 1999 and have no reason to replace it.  I use it for long distance calling and it has come in handy in while travelling (I miss pay phones).  I agreee with your assessment of modern stuff.  Glad you like the tutorials and the website.  Tony

Unless something breaks, do not replace it. If you don't need something new, dont buy it! I find it funny how modern society is- "hey, its new, I need it cause it will make me cool!"
Ya, no offense to anyone here. Just saying somehting.

Asemery, and other experienced net-makers: sometimes as my net advances, my rows get a little wonky. What is the best way to bring them back into line? I really don't want to undo the net a row or two when I'm 23 meshes wide.
The best I could figure was to run the mesh gauge on the new row so the longest loop would knot up like normal and the rest of the short loops would knot up a little shy of the gauge. At least that way the loops in that row would end in an even line.

That is a good way to get the meshes back in line.  To prevent further problems

Hold the gauge 90 degrees to the net
If you are using a foundation cord make sure the first row doesn't bunch up on the cord.  This could cause a slight angle to the net resulting on uneven rows.


Here are a few hints to help the beginning Net maker:
1.  MAINTAIN THE PINCH.  Pinch the 2 legs of the previous loop and the Working End between your thumb and forefinger against the top of the gauge.  This prevents the working end from slipping back.
...
2.  When you make a sheet bend, you are first forming a half hitch around the 2 strands of the loop you are tying into.  As you tighten draw the knot to the right instead of down to take out the slack.  As you see the half hitch form on the 2 legs gradually ease it down to your thumb and forefinger.  Do not release your pinch until the half hitch is locked into place, forming the sheet bend.
3. Keep pulling back to maintain some tension in the work.
4.  The most common mistake a novice makes is letting the half hitch form below the loop being tied into.
...

I chose the chain start, which I found on the pineapple-forum.  My first attempt soon revealed itself, even if I did my best to pay attention, as a  Möbius-strip ( Cheesy).
I untied it and soon got correct start.  I`ll continue later today.

As I have so far worked with thin fuzzy flax I have learned to pay attention to the sheet bends, I want no incorrect knots on my nets Smiley

Paleoarts, are those nets made by reverse twisting, or what?
Great gourd canteens.  I imagine the invention of carrying along water in such containers was a major step toward becoming modern humans, maybe to some degree comparable to smashing stones to make sharp shards, or using fire.

PS My bottle carrier seem to come along nicely.  I wonder how other net makers handle the gauge.  In the beginning it slipped to the floor between each sheet bend, not all that fun, and I soon tied a  neck lanyard to it, a solution that seem to work just fine.

Saw a video of a person making crab nets and for the base rows he used his fingers as a gauge...
then went on to use a netting fixture that had a stationary pin and a movable pin to set the gauge.

I realized that I have the "pinch of death" on my gauge. After half an hour of net making, my gauge forearm feels like a block of wood and the muscle at the base of my thumb is all engorged and scary looking.  I can probably let up a little bit.

What I really need to do is completely switch hands with every row.  (Instead of flipping the net and always working right to left, leave the net alone and work right to left, then left to right with the gauge in the opposite hand)
