I would like to state that this pattern is to serve as a guide for your individual creativity. I would hope you will experiment with color combinations, width and length of the wrap and the ruffle to create your own object of art. I combined the first three yarns because I liked the way magic ball added interest. The classic elite added density and bring together the colors of the main piece with the ruffle. The Big Bunz added luscious softness and warmth. These three yarns together made the wrap light and thick at the same time. The bamboo was used for its drape, softness and shimmer.

On WS BO in knit. This will prevent the edge from curling.
Use a clasp of choice- I used a metal and bone clasp, with a small double layer of cream colored felt between the two layers for support.
Adorn with buttons, charms or beads. I used a black chain cut into short lengths. I then wire wrapped a pearl on one end of the chain and a crystal on the other end. Then I slid the chain onto an eye pin that I thread through the button back and wrapped to secure it. I then used the wire loop and matching embroidery floss to sew them on .
