If you can read and braid, you can do it.

I am in the process, will probably post pics sometime soon. wound up doing a 24-strand braid. it eats cordage. Question- should I do 4 6-strand pouch pieces or 4 5 strand and 1 4 strand? Or what about 8 3 strand ones??? The thing is half done.
Thanks,

If you followed my tutorial and you're half way through, the pouch should be done by now. As far as the construction, if you don't have five cords for the pouch of five strands each it's not a Chamorro sling, it's something else. Post pictures 'cause I'd like to see it.  Smiley

Also, I am glad there is historical evidence for slinging big stone.
