Taper by dropping one strand at a time, finish your sling and use a simple knot at the end of you release cord.

Back to your pouch, tie some double knots at both ends before you start to weave.

Measure out another strand, about 3 - 4 yards or chin to arm extension lengths, and start by weaving it into the middle of the pouch, pulling it about halfway through

Now we are ready to weave, you can start with either working end and weave in the over-under fashion toward the outside of the pouch.

When you have no gaps left in the pouch, end your weaving in the underside of your pouch with a couple of double knots.

This style of pouch works brilliantly. I have made several slings like this and I used one of them in the competition in Mallorca last year. Thumbs up for a good tutorial!

Well done, sir.  Thank you for taking the time to make a lasting contribution to slinging.org.  I'm in a rush now but if someone doesn't beat me to it I'll post this in the FAQ section later.  It's a very good looking sling.  I can't wait to make one.

I was pretty good at slinging like 10 years ago.
