almost FO-opinion needed!
I need some help from you creative people!
I just finished my Lelah (pattern) and need an idea for the thing that goes through the eyelets. In the pic below there's currently a crocheted chain band, but not the right color.
I thought about making a chain with the pink yarn and another color, but which? Or does anyone have another idea?

P.S.: Yes, I'm wearing a black bra

I Think it would be pretty with a silky ribbon, either matching or contrasting would work. What a nice job! Lovely!

I like the ribbon idea, OR the chain idea because you could change the color depending on your pants/mood! Black, a baby pink, purple, aqua, same pink.....just NOT green or orange!

I think it would look best with ribbon...I like the idea of changing colors though according to outfit! Great job on the tank.

The black bra made me think that maybe a nice black ribbon would look good.

Nice, Javede!
Definitely like the ribbon idea. I'm picturing a WIDE ribbon if you can fit it. Black or white would look best I think. Although a deeper pink would look good too, come to think of it.

Very cool!

Thanks for the ideas!
I posted my solution on my blog. I really like the ribbon idea, but couldn't find a matching one yet.

@Nuno: It was pretty easy AND fast. It's a great pattern if your other WIP's bore you :rollseyes:
