Knitted neck straps?

I am sure it is possible, but use a durable material that won't flex/ stretch a lot. It will also need some sort of adjustment mechanism and a good solid hook to hold the horn. You can search around for average weights of different saxes...I think tenors tend to range from 7.5-8.5 pounds.

You might just make something great and become an innovator in the saxophone strap world. Who knows?

I wouldn't advise it.
Not that I don't think you couldn't make one, rather that there are too many factors involved that really require some careful testing.
If the worst happened and the strap gave way, you'd both feel awful.
