    In the first step, where you say "Group between twenty and forty loops together; fold one side to the center", what do you mean? Do you use the whole bag or only the loops? I have never done plarn before but want to make these as decorations for my party.

    Try looking at
    Stop before you hook the loops toether and use about 20 loops to make a flower! Hope that helps

    Shouldn't you call them "Plarnations"? ^_^

    That's agood idea. Thank you!
