I really liked the look of the loop d'loop, but was worried about it getting tangled, and I also had all these awesome vintage buttons, so I did a variation.  First I crocheted the first end piece, and attached two buttons, then I made the second end piece with the button holes, and then I started chaining.  The width between the two sides was about 80 chains, so I made some a few shorter and some a few longer so it would hang in a neat way.  I also chained about a third of the height in a plain brown yarn that coordinated with ther varigated yarn, which I believe is Lion Wool, but I'm not 100% sure on that. 

PS. sorry the pictures aren't great.  I'd just woken up and I let my 3 year old take the pics.

I like the way it turned out!  (And the pics look pretty good, too!  Props to your yung'in!) 

Thank you for the idea.  I've had the same concerns about the original loop d'loop, and have had a brain block on how to over come it.  I was going to do one long long piece, and them twist it as I wrapped it, to give it some structure.  But I like this better.  I can still do the twisty affect, but I won't be stuck with it on those days that I want something a little looser/longer.
