Lace ribbon through rings either making straight straps or X back, your choice. Measure ribbon to proper length to suit your preference of fit and cut 2 equal pieces. Using needle and thread in coordinating color sew ribbon in place around rings to form straps. ENJOY!

* note: I am aware the color listed in the materials is apparently now a discontinued color way and you may use any color of SWTC bamboo yarn of your choosing, or some very similar substitutions would be Red Heart lustersheen or Bernat cool crochet. You will need approx 500-1000 yards of either (2-4 skeins of lustersheen or 3-6 skeins of cool crochet)
