Also, in the 'How should the back of my project look?' section, the author tells you to "turn your project over occasionally to make certain that it is smooth and has no loose ends or crossovers....if you see any problems you should correct them immediately." However, there is no explanation on how to correct your problems. Do you cut a crossover stitch or do you have to undo all hooking before or after the crossover? What do I do if I do have loose ends?
And I am still very confused about how to finish off a rug. What am I doing at the corners with the binding tape? Also, she says to "whipstitch rug binding tape onto back of hooked design (see photo B)" Well, photo B shows the rug binding whipstitched on one side and straight stitched on the other side with yarn. There is no mention of the straight stitch and there is no explanation of how to get this yarn through your project without sewing up part of the hooking.
This book leaves certain aspects of rug hooking very confusing! If you are a VERY BEGINNER, like me, look for another beginners book. That's my recommendation.
