How to make a porotaka

To make a porotaka I used two strips of flax at least 30 centimetres long.
The strips were both the same width. 
First I folded strip A. 
Then I placed strip B inside the fold of strip A.
Next I weaved strip B around strip A.
Thereafter I pulled the four ends tightly to form a square.
Then I trimmed the blades so they are all the same length.
      Finally when I finished making my porotaka, I pinned it to a stick.
