Continuing to experiment with this pouch model.
It is more pliable than a conventional weave.
Jute string was used. 32 strands in the pouch, divided over 16 groups of 2
Round braid for the remainder of the sling.

I like the feel of jute to the skin, it is more pleasant than sisal, but my experience has been
that jute does not last long.

4 strand round braid sisal workhorse. Pouch has the same thickness cords and braid as the retention cord. About the most simple ''round'' design I can think of.

Edit: I just tried it out. I am going to make more of these but with a 5 strand flat braid for the pouch instead, because while the 4 strand round braid pouch strings do hold the stone it doesnt'feel as secure as I like.
