Step 1: Identify the row of knots which will be the new bottom edge. The fringe of the thatch will extend 6"-9" below the new end row of knots that you choose.
Lift the knot away from the loose top material in order to get a clean cut. Lift the knot far enough away for the cutter to get between the knots and the loose top material. Step 3:
Using garden clippers, positron cutters just below new edge row of knots, under the connecting pieces of thatch to the next row of knots.
Step 4: Cut! Make sure that you have the length you want and then go ahead and cut the connecting pieces. Continue this process for the entire piece of thatch, keeping the lengths consistent.
