TUTU Unfold the hank of A yarn.

This yarn is constructed like a tube.

Gently open up the length, slide your hand through the tube and grasp the opposite end of yarn.

Pull this end through to make a doubled thickness.

Waistband and TiesWind 2 colors of B yarns into 2 separate balls each.

With 4 strands of B yarns (2 strands each of 2 different colors) held together and leaving long beginning yarn tails, join B strands with a slip stitch along one long side of doubled A length.

Single crochet into A, then work next single crochet about 1 in.

(2.5 cm) further along the long side of A.

Continue in this way across the edge of A, so that the edge of A gathers as you work across to desired waistband length.

Turn, ch 1, then single crochet into each stitch across.

Fasten off, leaving long yarn tails.

FINISHING Trim ends of yarn tails.
