Instructions - Punching For The First Time

Punching for the 1st Time


1. Practice first.

2. Locate an area with a large section of background.

3. Begin and end with an anchor stitch. Punch one hole, punch back a hole, punch forward into the first (double punch). Double punch at the end of the row.

4. After punching one row you will collect the loops with a knit needle. Gently pull the loops up, then remove needle and clip.

IMPORTANT TIPS

The back of your rug is the side with the printed design on. This is the side you will be working on.


If you do not anchor your first and last stitch it will not hold tight. Each hole must have at least 6 strands of wool. One loop constitutes 6 strands because the wool is 3 ply.
