I can tell you how to make a finger sling.
Other than that my skill with ropes are limited.

Go to the classfield sling section. There's a guy who makes it.
As long as u ensure him that you wont take his job, I'm sure he'll show you.

Looks easy enough...
When you get to the place where you want the half hitch section, simply use an outside cord to tie a half hitch around the two center strands. Then do the same from the other end. If you alternate left and right, you should see the pattern shown in the picture.

Here's a single half hitch for reference:
