Connecting the Tie
Provide 5 inches of excess yarn

around it. Using a yarn needle, sew the last row to the first row. Arrange both sides of the band by folding evenly
at the center for final sewing. Sew the
folded sides together by running the needle through the middle part going
sideways on both sides. Tie it twice
inside to hide and then cut the excess yarn.
