Posted:Depends how long you want the poi!

If you're just folding it over and twisting the rope take the length of poi, double it, add about 20% for twisting shrinkage and errors. You can keeps the ends together by various means, but if you use a small knot then add a bit more.

You can also buy some cheap rope of the same diameter and experiment beforehand.
