|Now that your sprang piece is finished, carefully remove the sticks you were using for place holders. Leave 1-2 of the sticks at the top and bottom to help stabilize your work while you finish the casing for the drawstring.
Run your cord for the drawstring through when you remove the dowels.
|To make your casing more stable, crochet a twisted chain stitch. Pick up the first two loops with the crochet hook.|
|Then bring the hook back around to pick up the next two loops. Pull the loops through the first two. Work across the row.|
|To hold the last loop, run the cord through it.|
|So far, you have done exactly what you would have done for a pouch.|
|Running the Ties|
|Leave the top as threaded for the casing.|
|Take your cord and tie a square knot at one end of your sprang.|
|Taking one end of the bottom cord, weave it through the sides of the hair net. Stay close to the edge.|
|Continue until you have reached the top casing. Repeat on the other side.|
