Re: wrapping question
Covering a ring can be worked from right to left OR left to right, whichever suits your needs. For the bangle I recommend left to right, so that the first half of the DS is on the left and the second half of the DS is to the right.
The first loop comes up from under the bangle into the center of the bangle. then the needle or shuttle comes over the bangle through the loop. BUT, DO NOT TIGHTEN DOWN. You can reduce the loop but leave it a little slack.
Now the needle or shuttle is in front of the bangle.
Take a loop back from front to back under the edge of the bangle and then take the needle or shuttle through the loop, over the edge of the bangle.
The bar of the loop over the needle/shuttle thread is the cap of the DS.
Pick up the bar of the DS and tighten the first side by pulling on the bar.
Tighten the second side of the DS by pulling on the needle/shuttle to close the DS.
If your work does not look like a DS yet, put a crochet hook or the needle under the cap of the DS and tighten again. After the first one, it gets easier because you have a completed DS to tension against.
