Note: For demonstration purposes, in some pictures I will use white and blue colored warp yarns to represent the right and the left warps, respectively. This is intended to help viewers recognize each knot is tied on two warp strings.
We will begin the rug with several rows of wefts, alternating between the right (white) and left (blue) warps across (without tying any knots). After each row, the wefts are beaten down lightly with the comb. This will create a woven pattern effect called a kilim. It will help to decorate the piece, and it will also protect the knots from unraveling over the years.
Above, the weft was running under the WHITE warps, below, the wefts are now running under the BLUE warp. Followed by the packing using the comb tool.
After weaving several rows of wefts to complete the kilim, we are now ready to begin weaving the rug.
