Back to the overview
Start with an off-center midpoint of your wrap.
Create a pouch around your child and hold the strands on its chest height.
Support your child onto your forearm. Its legs face both in one direction, the strands face in the other direction.
Bring your child over your shoulder to your back.
Bend over, split the strands and bring your head through the internal strand.
Arrange the fabric and make sure that the internal edge runs at the neck of your child, the outer edge runs along the bottom of your child.
Create the strap between the baby`s knees by pushing the fabric between its legs (spread-squat-position).
Both strands face forward over your shoulders, now. Tighten both strands strand by strand.
Fix one strand between your knees.
Bring one of the strands to your back, crossing your front.
This strand runs underneath the leg of your child.
Change the hands fixing the strand on your back.
Bring the strand underneath the bottom of your child over its leg to the other side.
Bring it to the front…
…around your waist. The other strand between your knees is fixed now.
Bring it underneath the pouch to your back again.
This time, the strand runs above the leg of your child back to your front.
Fix this strand between your knees.
Loosen the other strand.
Start with the slipknot.
Twist the loose strand around the hanging one upwards, then down again, underneath the hanging one. A loop appears. Pull the fabric through the loop and fix it. Tighten strand by strand.
Fan out the fabric onto your shoulder.
Fan out the fabric across your breast.
And on the other side as well.
This is what the Twisted Ruck looks like.
