STEP ONE
Using the scissors cut the mesh to the size you would like the rug to be.
STEP TWO
Ensure that the pom poms you have made will have two long strands and then using the crochet hook pull each side through
STEP THREE
Tie the two ends together in a reef knot – left over right and under, right over left then under. This will keep the pom pom in place without making it too tight.
STEP FOUR
Repeat step three until your mesh is full and a compact rug is created.
STEP FIVE
Cut the excess wool from the back of the mesh and then enjoy your simple rug!
