how to build a stashbusting rug.
The basic stitch is made with 2 strips, one runs around the edge and the second knots around it.
The needle is flat, plastic with a dull point and large hole at the end. Lace the needle through the loop along the top going under the runner strip.
Using your finger to set your tension tighten the loop you just made and then remove your finger.
Lace the strip back through the loop left by your finger from top to bottom.
Pull the strip through and tighten.
It's a really simple stitch and goes pretty quickly, but can get tedious. I'm going to have to alternate it with other projects or I will get bored and never finish. :>/
