Finally made a set of whoopie slings this weekend after ordering the amsteel last year. Really pretty easy using some twisted 026 gauge floral wire my wife had. Backyard test went fine.
The hardest part was making sure I had the same number of strands on each side when going though the rope for the locked brummel. I had a hard time counting the strands in the weave pattern.
Thanks for all the ideas shared on this forum!
