Rug mark II with squash blossom design

I didn’t finish my rug in time for the last class tonight, but it doesn’t really matter, I know what to do. The next class doesn’t start until July so I have plenty of time. I’ll repeat the pattern from the bottom, this time really focussing on keeping even tension. You can see how the outline of the rug changes from the bottom up, first drawing inwards, then increasing. I actually made an effort in making the tan parts looser around the squash blossom design (the triangles)¬†because the bottom pattern ended up too tense. I’ll try to stay somewhere in the middle for the rest of the rug.¬†Hopefully I’ll manage to keep the rows more horizontal as well. On the up side, my diagonals turned out pretty nice!
