I started this a week ago as a gift for our daughter. Polka dots and zigzags are the focus in this rug. I am using darks and lights to have great contrast for the design to show up. The pattern comes from Nancy Young, a well known braiding teacher in Maine. This is her Killer Chair pad pattern. I understand the "killer" now, as each row is individual, and therefore, butted. 9 rows here, 9 times to perfect the butting.
This measure 18" in diameter now. I would like it larger. The decision to make is what color row next. Yellow and light green? all three? I will braid some samples to help make up my mind.
