Find the first bar on the second piece of knitting in the same manner as you found it on the first. Once again work the stitch by going under the bar.

Continue in this manner, alternating sides as you go, until you have worked a few stitches on each side. Pull the yarn gently as you go, but don't worry about making the pieces completely flush.
