GAUGE:
9 loops = 8 in. (20.5 cm) in pattern with 5 strands of yarn held tog. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
Front Loop Stitch: Insert hook in indicated st and draw up a loop; form a loop in front of work as follows: Bring working yarn to the front; hold working yarn with finger or thumb of hand holding the hook.

Leaving a loop of yarn in the front, bring working yarn to back of work.

Insert hook in same st and draw up a loop – 3 loops on hook.

Yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook to complete the st and lock the loop in place.

Back Loop Stitch: Insert hook in indicated st and draw up a loop; form a loop in back of work as follows: Working yarn should be at back of work, hold working yarn with finger or thumb of hand holding the hook.

Leaving a loop of yarn in the back, insert hook in same st and draw up a loop – 3 loops on hook.

Yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook to complete the st and lock the loop in place.

NOTES:
1.

Rug is worked with 5 strands of yarn held tog throughout, 2 strands of A + 2 strands of B + 1 strand of C.

2.

Length of "grass" is controlled by the length of the loop sts.

Make the loop sts as long or as short as desired.

If you make very long loops, additional yarn may be required.

3.

When working loop sts, hold the working yarn with the fingers or thumb of the hand holding the hook.

You may find it comfortable to hold the loop between the thumb or fingers and the hook.
