I know, I know! We've done a Double Hammock, Double Hammock Torso Variation and now this! I promise, after this we'll be done with the double hammocking for a while! This is just a great carry for those short wraps. Multilayered, readjustable, supportive and easy. The one shoulder is super stylish and this tutorial will show you how to rock that slip knot which will be so helpful when you start to work with other carries like a classic rebozo.

This one has taken me a lot of practice and I'll be sure to share as many details as I can to help you become a master wrapper. I choose a size 4 because I need extra length for the slip knot tying mostly. If I were to do a square knot/double knot, I could potentially use less but the square knot seems somewhat uncomfortable on my chest. Most wrappers can easily use a size 3 otherwise. Don't fret if this carry feels a bit low. Like our torso carry, it's restricted to height because of the passes coming under your arms.
