Hi, I'm Kristie Prince Hale, and today we're gonna talk about how to tie a sweater with a sash. This first example I'm gonna show you, we're gonna use this great bright pink sash, and it's made out of a satin material, and a lot of sashes tend to be a really slick material, so it can be a little difficult to work with, but I'm gonna show you some great ways to make it happen. This particular sweater we're using today actually has belt reinforcements, so I'm simply gonna take one side of my sash and I'm gonna put it through the belt loop, just like I would if I was putting a belt on. And you want to make sure that in the back it's laying flat, and we're gonna pull it all the way around to the front. So we're gonna make sure they're even, and for this first example, we're simply gonna be tying a bow, similar to how you would tie your own shoelaces. So we're gonna start by simply tying a knot, gonna pull this over, under, and then we've got a little knot here, and we're gonna start our loop process. So I'm gonna simply loop this over, cross it, and loop it again, and pull. You want to make sure that it's nice and tight so that the material stays together. And wallah, there you go. There's a great way to tie a sash there. And that great sash adds a nice pop of color to this simple sweater. We are going to use this great beaded sash though. You can see here, it's also kind of a slick material, but it's got some great beading and some sequins. So, adds a lot of extra personality. And what we're gonna do is simply wrap it around, and we want to make sure the beads are in the front, and this time instead of tying it in the front, we're actually gonna tie it on the side. And I'm going to tie it in a knot, and I'm gonna actually tie it twice. This material, like I said, is a little slick as well, so we want to make sure it stays in place. And then in the front, you'll want to make sure that you make any adjustments, so that we actually can see these great beads and sequins that add some great personality to this outfit. So it almost resembles a great belt, thick belt. So there you go. Got some great beading, it looks fantastic. So use those tips to tie those sashes, and I know you'll look great. Thanks for joining me, I'm Kristie Prince Hale.
