Thumbs up Firewood Carrier

Hi. Picture yourself on a camping trip walking in a pristine forest when you spot a downed tree. Knowing there is little firewood around your campsite you get out your trusty hatchet. In no time you have an impressive pile of firewood. How to get it back to camp? If you make one of these it's no problem at all.
Picture shows carrier with over 40 pounds of sticks.

Light, compact and strong. You can make this from various materials. This one is made from jute twine. Almost twice as thick standard weight yarn and much stronger. This can be made on a rake or round loom. After making it I think it should be a bit wider and not as long so the pattern below reflects this using a technique I call knot knitting.
Should last many years if taken care of.

Sounds like a good idea for camping or a Boy Scout project.
