I have turned the rug to the back side and have done a half Damascus edge across from right to left. Now I am darning in each warp end into the rug. Because of where this rug will reside, at front door, I didn't want fringe. I found out how to do this edge treatment in this Weaver's Journal: October 1977 , and it can be found at this on-line archive of weaving and related topics. http://www.cs.arizona.edu/patterns/weaving/index.html
|I have gone right to left for the Damascus edge and will now darn in from the left to right.|
After I get all the warp ends darned in, I think I will use 'fray check' to help seal the edge.
