Make-up:

Sew in yarn ends. Cut 40cm (width +5cm) of ribbon for the bottom of the roll and pin to the knitted piece with the center of the ribbon 40cm from the top edge. The raw ends of the ribbon will wrap over the sides of the knit by 2.5cm each side. Stitch down with a running stitch. Fold and use yarn to stitch vertical lines between the edge of the ribbon and the top of the double layer. Cut 1.5m of ribbon and stitch one end to right edge of the roll.
