could you try to explain a little differently your combining method to me...because you know, i'm retarded and everything, and don't get it.
maybe provide some visuals? possibly?
the part i really don't understand is why the crochet hook(or whatever tool) needs to be up in the center of the dread...
what purpose does that serve?
i've tried to figure it out several times, and each time i've failed.
soooo, if you could enlighten me, it'd be quite awesome.
