Ok so I'm just getting into using a woven wrap and wanted to start a thread asking about your go to carries and maybe some helpful tips and advice. I just don't get the double hammock so I'm sure I'm doing it wrong but just wondered what other carries people favour. At the moment as a beginner I'm loving the high back carry as its quite easy with the half knot and I find it really comfortable with the chest belt.
What are your favourites and why?

Unfortunately my daughter doesn't like back carry so it's usually fwcc for us.though not anymore until I have this Bub anyways.

I like the kangaroo carry (front carry), I used to do it a lot when DD was smaller with a shorty (size 3 wrap).
I found wrap you in love very helpful, she's a babywearing consultant in Europe and her tutorials are really easy to follow

Oh I miss wrapping!
For the first ~6 months I pretty much just used FWCC (plus ring slings) since he was often in for about an hour at a time.
Then from 6-18 months FCC was my go-to front carry as he could easily get in and out without unwrapping.
For quick ups when I just wanted him to go to sleep and then put him down was either FWCC TUB or Kangaroo TUB with a shortie - as those were easy to unwrap and transfer from.
For back carries, ruck was great at first (and definitely the quickest, easiest back carry!) but DH was my favourite from ~12-24 months as it's so supportive!
HJBC and RRRR (TAS) are good shortie back carries but I never really got into them, I like having the chest pass for support. Plus I was never good at keeping tension while tying at the shoulder.
I also never mastered Poppins hip carry but Robin's with a long wrap and using the tails as if you were doing a FWCC was super comfy for a mid-sized baby.
Oh and for more comfortable front carries - flip the shoulders as if you were doing a kangaroo, I think it greatly improves FWCC/FCC!

A kind of unrelated but neat trick I discovered recently was back carries with a ring - kind of like how SHBC crosses in the middle. Pulls the straps out of my armpits and prevents the circulation being cut off from my arms
I'll see if I can find a photo...

Yes please photo would be good! I've got a spare pair of rings I can experiment with.
