Rug Gauge to cut 5 inch strips, 7 inches long
Used with the latch hooks to precut the rug yarn. Yarn is wound evenly around the gauge then cut along the notch using scissors or a sharp blade. This gives perfect 5 inch strips every time although it is imperative you don't overfill the gauge to ensure regular cuts. 3, 5 inch strands of finer rug wools can be used in each hole to imitate the Scandinavian Rya rugs.
