It sounds like you might have too much slack above the wrap around the leg before laying back with the waist wrap. Rain mentioned keeping the tail of one fabric across the back to elbow to manage slack, and the other place where slack might gather is how high you reach on the free pole before wrapping the ankle. The higher the reach, the more room you have to lay back, which gets the feet above the hips and the cuddle a little funky. Play with hand placement on the free pole after the lasso and hopefully that might be an answer! Keep us posted on progress!
