Step 3:

Separate the folds of each strip. Place 1st strip below the 2nd strip and join them with a knot as shown in the pictures. Please make sure not to bind the 2 ends tightly so the plarn will turn very thin. Just make a soft knot.

This will make a worsted weight yarn. You can use 4mm-5mm hook to crochet with it. I have used this plarn for making my two patterns: Plarn Heart Applique and Plarn Flower Applique.
