Finish off, weave in ends.

Lacing holes

Repeat once for each side. WS/RS is not important.

Join yarn at the bottom corner of the piece and work up the edge.

Repeat (sc, ch 2, sk 1) 15 times.

Finish off, weave in ends.

Tie

To make a tie, chain until the chain measures about 75cm/30 “.

For extra reinforcement you can sl st in each ch.

Thread the tie through the lacing holes like a shoelace to secure.
