Unfortunately, my video skills are not too great, and there was a portion of the video not visible during the filming. So...I created a short part II.
A couple of follow up comments:
- First row - 1/3 of your desired length gives you an estimated size keeping the rug at a proportion of 2/3 length to 1/3 width.
- L-W will help if you need an odd size oval. (long and skinny for example)
- There are several ways to start and create the knots. This is what works for me
