Great beginner project. Just uses knit and purl stitches but with the Recycled Silk, it looks like a very fancy project. Framed with a border of seed stitch (so it lays flat), the inside area of the rug is in stockinette. I found the rug slippery on my hardwood floors, so I backed the rug with non-skid backing (cut from a large piece bought at Target) which I just basted around the outside and tacked about every 4 inches. It is stretchy so the backing helps it hold its shape too.
