LEFT HAND: How to Make A Toothbrush Rug

After teaching several Toothbrush (aka) Amish Knot Rug classes, I realized that the process is totally different for left handed people. I learned this the hard way, when at least one left handed person attended almost every class I have taught over the last few months. Some have been able to adapt my process and directions very well. Others have struggled. I thought perhaps a video and instructions for Left handed people would be helpful.

 Left-handers will work in a direction that is opposite to right-handers.

With my instructions and videos, right handed people should work towards the right and left handed people should work towards the left.

I've created a video showing how a Left Handed person should start a rug:

Full written instructions for Round Rugs will be available in March 2017. Visit my Etsy Shop: Whimsies and Rugs

If you are a right handed person, my video for how to start a round rug may be found here:
