Cut four pieces of neon pink yarn measuring 2m each. Fold them in half and take the folded end through the pole ring. Next take the other end through the yarn loop and pull tightly. You now have eight strands of yarn.

      What I use is “Bonnie Craft Cord”. It is made of 100% polyolefin fibers. It also is fusible. It is available on-line at; They have several sizes and many colors to choose from.

    I don’t know why you don’t use inches. I have no idea what 2 m is. I have to read your instructions and jump on google to see how long to cut the yarn.
    Google says it’s 6’ 6.75. I hope I’m right.

      Most of the world uses the metric system. She wouldn’t use standard measurements if he or she is not from the United States.

        If I knew the metic system I would use both measurements in my instructions. Sadly I don’t live in most of the world. I’m in the US
        with the standard math.
