Finishing the Plastic Yarn
Plarn final loop

Trimming the final loop of a cut strand of plarn.

At the beginning and end of the bag, you'll likely end up with additional loops hanging off the strand rather tan straight pieces after you've done the cutting described in step two.

You can either trim these pieces at an angle to cut the loop open or just trim the loop off.

You lose a little length that way but it isn't a big loss if you cut off a little here (or ever accidentally cut the plarn in such a way that it breaks the continuous strand).
