I’ve been working on a new rug and I wanted to share. I experimented with doing the “box stitch” throughout adding 2 stripes with the “open rib” to add a change in texture. (Really, you can only see one in this picture because the other stripe was just knit).
It is really easy to do and knits great with the new heavy duty knitting board. I will put pattern up for free when I’m finished. I used Raliwool but any really heavy bulky yarn would work.
