Note:  When working TuTu Lamé and Merino 5 together, hold TuTu Lamé across front of work, keeping the cut end on right-hand side.  Fold end of TuTu Lamé so 1st and 2nd rectanglular openings overlap.  Insert working needle into both overlapped openings knitwise, then through the Merino 5 st on the needle.  Finish knitting the st with Merino 5 only.  Repeat, inserting needle in next TuTu Lamé opening before knitting next stitch.  When starting new ball of TuTu Lamé, overlap 1st and 2nd rectangular openings for 1st st to form nice edge, as mentioned above.  For more information, see this video tutorial.
