I have been working on my first rug with the Rali Wool and I wanted to show some photos of the progress. There are so many options of design that I could incorporate into the rug. But, I decided to start rather simple and see how it goes. Actually part of the fun is designing as you go along. I am using the Rali wool -Spring for the frame and the Blue Midnight for the base color. The stripe is knit in Sunset. I am pondering the idea of adding another narrow stripe of color, but there are so many awesome colors it’s hard to decide. I’m using the 28″ knitting board and the rug will be approximately 32″ wide using 82pins of the board.
Some tips in creating the frame around the base color:
- Use 2 seperate skeins. Don’t tie in color.
- When you are ready to change colors just twist yarn around the other color just to attach the yarns together. Otherwise you will be creating 2 stripes that aren’t attached. (photo below)
