kiki mariko rug

Do we do the blanket stitch on just the side edges of the rug (not the cast-on and cast-off edges)?
Thank you!

Do it wherever you want to do. I’m planning on doing all four sides.

Edited to add: Wow, I just reread this and it sounds really snippy. It’s not meant to be. I wrote it with a big smile on my face. That’s part of the beauty of this project - you can really do whatever you want! If it makes you happy, then it’s perfect.

Thank you, and no, you don’t sound snippy!

I only did the cut sides because I liked the solid look the cast on and off edges already had. But I am a little worried about the corners so I’ll be keeping on eye on those.

Here’s the final product-finished yesterday so I officially completed the whole thing within the month!! I just needed better lighting for my final picture and the snow adds contrast and shows off the colors more accurately. I never thought I’d say I love a rug but I LOVE THIS RUG!!!

Final size - 26”x43”

Your rug looks great! I finished mine last night, first time to steek but all went well. Now I need to do a binding or blanket stitch around the sides.
