First off, thanks to all of you who left such kind comments on my book. They are all so very appreciated!
Also, thanks to all of you who loved my rug! Here's a little tutorial so you can make your own!
Knot the strings end to end. I do this on the go, so the "yarn" doesn't get tangled. Use two strings held together as one "yarn" throughout. Using size 35 needles, cast on 38 stitches (or as many as you can fit on your needle). Knit in garter stitch until you reach the desired length of your rug. This will require a bit of wrestling from time to time. :) Bind off using a stretchy bind off technique. Then enjoy the wonderful texture!
