Rug Making instructions

WORKING THE carpet

Regardless of which latch-hooking method you use, the completed rows are going to be closest for you and the unworked fabric further away. That is since it's much easier to latch-hook because path. For many people, when working image rugs, that means working bottom-up/away from you. It is vital to follow one technique so your knots all face similar course - otherwise, given that rug wears, the knots will settle unevenly and then leave gaps inside rug. After that, most of us develop our favourtie practices. Some prefer to operate in rigid rows from a single part to the other. I like to work with obstructs around 10 rows by 20 squares. Once I arrive at an intricate area, I often work that area as a block. Every so often, it's a wise decision to make the carpet over and check for missed knots. The one thing in order to avoid is filling out one color at any given time regarding canvas - not only will this get fiddly, there is a likelihood of missing squares or pulling the canvas away from form while you battle to fit a knot into a gap.

Circular or shaped edges need binding, however with straight-edged rugs you simply need to turn the cut edges and knot through dual thickness. Whether you turn these over upwards or downwards is actually a matter of inclination (Readicut tell you to fold them up). Folding all of them over up ensures the rear of the rug is completely level, which will be crucial in the event that you anticipate it to obtain many wear. For strictly ornamental rugs, it does not truly matter.

DIRECTIONS FROM 1970S LATCH-HOOKING SUPPLIERS BOYE

This group of directions from now defunct latch-hooking vendors "Boye" are some of the most comprehensive i have run into in design publications of that time period. It advises the rug-maker to hem the rug after hoooking it, despite rectangular canvases(unlike the Readicut guidelines).
