Living in the UK has definitely been the inspiration for an item such as this since most brollies, even the best quality ones, do not always come with shoulder straps.  So when you need to have your  full size umbrella close by but want to be able to free up your hands for shopping, portfolio, or coffee cup management, etc., Heathcote Road’s Foxy Umbrella Sling is just the ticket. It takes only moments to place on your umbrella, and can be removed just as quickly. Compact in size, it tucks easily into a pocket or your handbag when not in use.

It is worked in the round, then back and forth, then finished with an I cord. Only one small seam to stitch. Quick and easy with simple stitches.

Great for using up bits of 4 ply cotton, bamboo, linen or hemp yarn as it only needs 20 grams of yarn, about 50 metres. Mine actually only weighs 12 g!
