Ties:
With Main Colour, loop yarn into approximately 18-20 inch long loops as shown in the picture.

Using a crochet hook, pull the folded side of the yarn through the centre stitch at the bottom of the earflap, making a loop. Pull the free ends of the yarn through this loop and pull tight.
Divide yarn in to three parts, plaint or braid to the end, and tie a knot to finish up. One tie is made. Repeat on the other earflap to make second tie.
