After some thought and such I decided that I like my concept of offering one size of a pattern for free and multiple sizes at a cost. With this in mind I decided that I should publish a size of the Tayla Jade for nix, nothing, nada! For no good reason I have chosen the size 4. Sizes 1 through 10 are still available for the low, low price of $5, click here to purchase.
So here you go!

Cut yarn and thread through the remaining stitch
Rejoin yarn beside completed strap, BO all bar 4 stitches and repeat rows 2 and 3 for other strap.
Weave in ends and block. Trust me; blocking does make all the difference. For the uninitiated, this really just means wash your TJ and lay it out nice and flat to dry, pulling the lace out open. See not that scary at all!
