BINDING a RUG

STARTING in a CORNER
I  finished the hooked edge of my latest rug with a # 10 cut (e.g. 1/2 inch wide) row all around the outside edge . . .the rest of my rug is in a #9 cut (e.g. 9/32nds of an inch)
If you are  also a quilter ,you would perhaps start to sew your binding on anywhere  BUT the CORNER!!!. . . but . . .
for a RUG:
if you  do start in a corner  for your rug  then you can neatly finish with  a mitre in the same corner and not have an ugly  seam on the side  length of your masterpiece . . .
Be sure to sew up tight and cozy to the last row of hooking so no backing will show!
