What are the 2 balls of Bamboo Ewe for? and where are the instructions for the tie at the waist?

Hi there! I checked the original pattern and actually the Bamboo Ewe yarn is the type of yarn for all the colors. Unfortunately Bamboo Ewe yarn has been discontinued, but yarnsub.com is a fantastic resource. I believe the directions for the tie are in step 17 above. Let me know if that doesn't look right. I hope that helps!
