This is my first rug. I did not know making the turn at the end of the row in a different way changed the fabric's color pattern. Several tutorials show it done in different ways. The rows done last made it obvious. Even though it does look nice, I will undo those rows. Better the color pattern looks random all the way for uniformity.

twining the turn
I've made one twined rug, so far - your post makes me want to start another. The turns were tricky and I had to undo some to get what I wanted. Seeing that you did a different color stripe near one end makes me want to mention that a good way to keep things symetrical with twining is to work top and bottom at the same time and work toward the middle. What a happy start for a new year!
That is looking great, and I admire your drive to make it right. The only twined project I still have is a hot mat made from bedsheets. I thought maybe it had disappeared, but I found it deep in the linen closet yesterday, and thought of you.
