A good idea The different pattern in the middle of the rug is the same as on the ends of the rug, but it is woven higher by repeating the same pattern pick several times. Try this idea on other overshot rugs too!

At the beginning and end, weave a 3 cm hem allowance with 8/4 Linen rug yarn and 12 cm hem by alternating 2 picks of Muhku wool yarn doubled and 1 pick of 8/4 Linen warp. Weave the rug according to the treadling instructions with double Muhku Thick Wool yarn for the pattern weft and 8/4 Linen rug warp for plain weave weft. The woven length of the rug is 2.32 m, includes the hems.
Tie the warp threads using tight square knots. Shorten the threads and sew the hem by hand using a strong thread. You can use both sides of the rug as the right side.
The pattern is beautiful also on the reverse side.
