Alternative Finishing
Seam each front to the back at the side seam anywhere from 8 to 20" from the bottom edge up. Pin the fronts to the back before seaming to determine where you would like the seam to end. If you have trouble seaming with these yarns, use a smooth yarn of a similar color.You may also cut strands of yarn, thread them through the side seams with a tapestry needle and tie in a bow. Use the number of bows desired. This way, the sides aren't seamed permanently and you can wear your new wrap two different ways.
