Finishing

Assembly

Lay out as pictured on a flat surface.

Use stitch markers to mark each end of the edges where the pieces meet on the first two circles.

Lay the pieces right sides together and line up the marked stitches.

Using yarn scraps in corresponding colors, working through the outside loops of each piece, sc join (see Special Stitches) and sc between the markers.

Lay pieces back down with the rest and mark the next edge to join. Repeat this for each section until the rug is attached at every point where the circles meet.
