Rya Rug making: Scandinavian Art Handicraft

The following instructions may help those who have forgotten how to tie a rya knot. The instructions are a copy of those which were included in a pillow kit. Please do not follow the instructions for the number of threads in a needle, etc. as they are specific to the pillow which the kit produced. The number of threads in the needle should normally be more than one and can be three or four depending on the type of yarn and the type of pile desired.

Tapestry 10 is the size of needle normally used when making rya rugs.
