How do you flatten a braided rug?
Similarly, you may ask, how do you flatten a new rug?
To flatten corners that are curling upward, fold them slightly under so the curve points down, leaving them that way for a day or two. If they already curl under, flip the rug over and curl the corners under, or leave the rug upright and set a heavy object near each corner for a day or so to relax the carpet fibers.
Likewise, why is my rug curling up? Carpets that curl up at the corners are a tripping hazard. A carpet or rug should lay flat all around regardless of whether it sits on tile, hardwood or another carpeted surface. The flips that form at the corners could be from new, rigid material or from movement as feet shuffle over it.
Then, why are rag rugs wavy?
Replace a row of stitches at a time. Place your rug on a flat surface to make sure that your stitches lie flat. If the rug curls around the edges, it means you do not have enough stitches on your most recent row. If the rug ripples around the edges, it means you have too many stitches.
