I might be having am"blonde moment " but I really don't understand this pattern. I saw the comment about the yarn doing it ..will search for that type of yarn and hope to figure this out , I gotta make this beautiful rug!!! Great job

Hi jngilesfl 4642086, the instructions above fail to point out that Premier Reggae Yarn is a novelty yarn that requires a special knitting technique. It is like a ruffle yarn in that it has a ladder going across the top edge and that is what you knit into. It has textured shaggy pieces that hang off the ladder, so that is what gives this rug its plush look and feel. There's a video on YouTube that shows how to knit with this specialty yarn.

How do you get the shaggy look?

Its the reggae yarn that looks like that.

How do you get the shaggy look?
