  • To sew the ends with a twist:
    • Lay the band with the right side facing up
    • Fold both ends in to center
    • Pick up first end and fold in half across the short end with the right sides together and repeat with the other side
  • Insert the one end inside the other: 4 thicknesses with both sides folded in half and slid inside one another (just on the ends – not the whole band)
  • With the yarn tail stitch through all 4 thicknesses making sure to catch each st along the ends of the bands and you sew back and forth
  • Turn right side out
