Here are our easy to follow tutorials for tying a traditional sling pass carry and making a slipknot
TRADITIONAL SLING PASS AND SLIPKNOT
- The Traditional Sling Pass is a wonderful and versatile option for a short wrap. It needs relatively little length, so you can use as short a wrap as possible ( with a longer wrap you will have more ‘swooshy’ tails leftover).
- It is a single pass carry which, using the slipknot, can be adjusted as often as is needed. This makes it a great option for breastfeeding and wonderfully supportive for newborns.
- It is fab for ‘quick ups’ for older children You can pre-tie it before you go out and leave it in place if your child wants to walk; potentially starting a fashion trend for cloth ‘sashes’ in your local area!
- This can be a hip carry right through to a slightly off-centre front carry, depending on how far round your torso you seat your child, giving you the flexibility to find the most comfortable/practical positioning for you both.
- It functions in much the same way as a ring-sling (only with the knot in place of the rings). Some people who struggle to get a ring sling comfortable can find this carry easier to tie and adjust.than positioning and tightening the fixed rings correctly.

The slipknot is an incredibly useful tool to have when babywearing and once you can do it confidently and quickly it also looks awesome!
