This is a handy way to make a sling.  What makes it handy?  You don't need to use two pieces of cord, and if you need the rope for another reason quickly, you just untie the finger loop and the stopper knot, pull the string through one hole, than pull!  I find that this would be handy in survival situations, as you would not have to cut valuable cord.  It is easy to make, and it is easy to get the cord back.  For more resources on slings, including how to make them, use them, and more, visit: slinging.org.

Step 1: Tools and Materials

The needed items and tools are:
     - Paracord (17 1/2 feet for about a 30 inch. sling)
     - Lighter (if you are going to cut your Paracord)
     - Knife or Scissors (if you are going to cut your Paracord)
     - Poker or Pen (optional, but very helpful)
     - Tape mesure (optional, not pictured)

For the stopper knot, I used a Ashley Stopper knot.  First, make a loop, than fold it down.  This will form two loops, which we will call loop A and B.  Move half A underneath the two strings and through loop B.  Tighten loop B.  Move the end of the rope through loop A, than tighten the knot up.

To make the rock-pouch, you will start with a loop stitch.  To do this, make a slip knot, than continue to make loops through the previously made loop.  Make 5 loop stitches.  The next steps are a bit tricky, and I have included all instructions in the photos, so pay close attention to the pictures.  You will want roughly 56 inch. after the last slatt weave for a sling that is about 30 inch.   After finishing all the steps indicated in the photos, all you have to do to finish is make a finger loop.   :)
