Fold work in half along its length with WS to­gether and with Yarn A row fac­ing at front, ch1 (not counted as a st), ss through both lay­ers to end, match­ing up the sts (ss to ss, dc to dc, htr to htr and tr to tr).

Fas­ten off and weave in ends.

Make 2 holes on the side of the file to match the metal eye­lets and fix eye­lets. Thread chains of han­dles through holes and tie to­gether on the in­side.
