What size netting do you use? Is nylon net with 3/4 squares good?

Where is a good place on the enternet to buy nylon net?

Do I tie burlap to all 4 sides of the sqaure?

I want to make a Ghillie suit with detachable netting so I can wash the base garment or change the camo sceme. Whats a good way to do this?

Sounds like you are on your way to making a puff-ball!

My buddy and I used 4 strands of burlap per tie and spaced them about 1-1/4 apart. While you make the suit it doesn't look thick enough at first but it adds up. What you want to avoid is using so much that it turns into a dandelion when you get it wet and dries out.

P.S. Don't forget the fire retartdant.

Don't forget the 1/4" padding on the front side. There are great links on sniperworld

Make sure you soak the suit in fire retardent, otherwise a little flame will turn you into a human torch!!!

So if im using 1 inch square holes only put 1 tie of 4 strands on each square?

Yep. If you want to add more later you can, just don't over-do it.
