Step-by-step:

Text 

Step 1

Start with an off-center midpoint of your wrap.

Step 2

Create a pouch around your child and hold the strands on its chest height.

Step 3

Support your child onto your forearm. Its legs face both in one direction, the strands face in the other direction.

Step 4

Bring your child over your shoulder to your back.

Step 5

Bend over, split the strands and bring your head through the internal strand.

Step 6

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.

Step 7

Create the strap between the baby`s knees by pushing the fabric between its legs (spread-squat-position).

Step 8

Both strands face forward over your shoulders, now. Tighten both strands strand by strand.

Step 9

Fix one strand between your knees.

Step 10

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.

Step 13

Bring the strand underneath the bottom of your child over its leg to the other side.

Bring it to the front…

Fix this strand between your knees.

Step 19
