Step 3: Join the two colors

Picture of Join the two colors
If you are using the same color cord for the outer and inner edges, cut a piece about 7.5 feet long and skip this step. If you are using two colors, read on.

Cut one piece of each color to about 3.5 to 4 feet long. Burn all the ends except for one end of one of the pieces. On the piece you didn't burn, pull the inner strands out about an inch. Then, take one side of the other color and put it into the other piece. (I know this is kind of confusing... just follow the pics) Then, burn all the little frayed pieces of the color you pulled the strands from to attach the two colors. Now go take a break and drink some root beer to clear your mind from all the confusing stuff.
