Hmm, One Row or Two??

The rug is hooked but not steamed or bound yet.  Before it is steamed I need to decide if it needs just one row of brown border or two.  I don't want to overpower the delicateness of the design.
But also don't want to make it seem incomplete.  For sure I wouldn't want a two inch border as that would be too bold.  Instead of hooking a row I just placed a strip of brown wool around the perimeter take a look on my screen.  
Well dang, you can see the foundation between the hooked strip and just the wool strip.  So what do you think?  One or two rows?



  1. I think two would be good! Looks grand!!! Janice

  2. I like two rows - looks more "complete" and grounded. :-)

  3. two rows (or even 3, depending on how you plan to finish the piece. If you're whipping with dark yarn, maybe just 2).

  4. I can't believe you are finished hooking that already. WOW!!!

  5. Hi Saundra!
    LOVE this rug. Gorgeous darling, just like you
    I’m liking the one row but it may be a case of having to be there.
