When you break the yarn, the tapered end it creates allows the tail to pass more smoothly through the shaft of the yarn. First, thread one of your yarn ends on a yarn needle. Insert the needle back into the strand of yarn and draw it through about two inches worth (depending on how slippery the yarn is you can increase or decrease this measurement), making sure to keep it inside the wound plies. Pull the needle and yarn tail out along the strand of yarn, leaving a loop at the end. Thread the other piece of yarn on the needle and pass it through the loop you created with the first length of yarn.

Run this yarn back along itself as you did with the first. Tug on the yarn ends to tighten the loops. Recycled Lettuce Netting Diagonal Scrubbies. Posted on March 9, 2012 Here is a new twist on recycling those plastic produce nets that lettuce comes in at your grocery store.
