Work in jute stitch as follows:

1st row (RS): *p1, sl1 wyif, repeat from * to last st, p1
2nd row (WS): *k1, p1, repeat from* to last st, k1

Sewing up:

  2. Using mattress stitch, sew the cast-off and cast-on edges together to form a long tube.

  3. Thread the elastic through and tie the ends of the elastic together.

  4. Secure all remaining yarn ends with a knot, and tuck them inside this tube.

  5. Sew the short tube ends together.

  6. Weave in the final yarn tail.
