Easy guitar strap
I'm looking for a pattern for an easy to make guitar strap. I found one on knitty.com but it isn't what I'm looking for. Anyone have any ideas? thanks~Brooke

There aren't that many options in guitar strap design. Describe what you are looking for and I bet we could design it together in this thread. Maybe.

Have you checked Knitty Gritty on DIY network website? They repeated the guitar strap show last night as a matter of fact. They have a pattern there.

Thank You oshnpashn. I found it and may just knit it. It's for a friends' birthday in 10 days so I'd better get movin'. Thanks Again. ~Brooke

Brookenic, I'd love to see a picture of yours and know what yarn you used, when you complete it. I've been thinking about making one for my 21yod. I'm still to new at this knitting thing to be familiar enough with yarns to be comfortable in choosing one, since whatever I use will have to be ordered online (no LYS here). I know I'll want my dd's to be something wild and funky. :D

I checked this out & the pattern on DIY is the same pattern as the one on knitty. The host of the show is the same designer as the pattern on knitty.

Well it looks to tricky for me to be done with in a week. Maybe I'll make it for her for Christmas. I can't start now tho, I have no empty needles! Time for the Denise Set ~Brooke

Guitar strap for Par
I have to make a guitar strap for my best friend.
Only he wants it made out of hemp!
My local store has some red hemp yarn and I'm looking for black or natural to go with. I think I'll double knit it (need to learn) and put his nickname "Parliament" along it.

I'm unsure how to do ends that are super secure, I'm sure a braided hemp loop should be strong enough, and easy to replace.

If anyone will let me know any obvious flaws with my plan, I'd most appreciate it.

Thanks,
Salvatore

That sounds really neat to me, but I'm too inexperienced to help you with your plan. I think I'll just sit back and wait for you or Brooke to get yours made, here your reviews of it's difficulty (or lack of it), then decide if I want to attempt one for my dd for Christmas. :D
