First, you want to choose two pieces of fleece. You can choose two pieces that are the same pattern, two different patterns, two plain colors or a pattern on one side and a plain color on the other. I chose to use on patterned and one colored. The two that I made for a child, measured 1 1/2 yards and the one I made for an adult was two yards. You may need to judge by the height of the person you are making it for. Take the peices and align them together. Make sure that you trim edges if needed to make them even. Some of the patterned material has an edging with the company's name. This too will need cut off. Cut the strips about one inch and one inch apart. Tie the strips hand over hand, switching right to left if you prefer so that the patterned side and plain side go back and forth. Then, there you have it! Enjoy!
