Add Fringe to Your Knotted Rug

When making a knotted rug using the Toothbrush or Amish Knot technique, you can add fringe to the outside edges for a whole new look!

Extra ideas and tips:

*Adding an EXTRA KNOT after you attach each piece of fringe will help to secure it during washings. It may not be necessary, but with some fabrics it will help. If your fringe doesn't knot tightly, go ahead and add that extra knot.

Use several colors or choose one color to compliment the rug.

Using fringe is a great way to extend the size of your rug if you are running low on fabric.

You can increase the size of your rug by 6" when added fringe.

Make your 8" fabric section as wide as you can. Then, cut the 1" strips.

8" strips = 2.5" fringe tails

The rug in the video was 22" before the fringe was added. 100 strips of fabric were used to create the fringe. Finished size with fringe is 28".
