    Such a pretty pattern! I’ve been looking for a rug pattern to make some matching rugs for my kitchen. The end of the pattern says to sew the squares together as illustrated. Could you point me to that illustration, please?

    Thank you for sharing this pattern!

    oops – I think it means as pictured – I was thinking there was a special way to sew them together – with a particular stitch. So just assemble the squares with the standard whipstitch? Sorry!!

    This is a beautiful pattern, thank you. I’m not sure I have the endurance to make the rug but the individual square will make a spectacular hotpad, maaybe worsted weight with a G or H hook. What a great stash buster!
