Short front cross carry is a poppable carry that can be done with a base -1 to base -4 depending on the wrap you use. This carry can be done with or without a ring. This will demonstrate how to do short front cross carry with a ring.
Starting with one sling ring and your base-1
to -4 wrap, put the wrap through the ring.
Bring the ring to your middle marker.
Drape the wrap over your shoulders with the sling ring at the center of your back.
Cross the passes in front of you to make an X.
Stick your fingers through the ring and grab one wrap
Pull it through from the outside, in.
Repeat on the opposite side. Pull the wrap
through the rings from the outside, in.
Tighten or loosen as needed to make space for your wearee and you’re ready to put them in!
Pull their first leg through the inside
Pull their next leg through the outside pass.
Grab the top rail of the inside pass, and
follow down the rail. Spread the pass.
Follow the top rail of the outside pass, then
spread that pass as well.
Tighten piece by piece through the wrap on both sides and
guide the excess wrap through the ring. Tighten.
There you have it! Short front cross carry. You can flip
the shoulders out if you want.
You can also tuck sleeping heads.
