Divide each cone of yarn into 3 equal size balls (each about 18 yd (18 m) long), so that you have 6 balls of yarn total.
Place each ball of yarn into a small paper bag or a ceramic bowl, this will keep the balls from rolling around while you are working.
Pull a strand of yarn from each ball so that you have 6 strands total. With binder clip, clip strands together at one end. Divide the strands into 3 groups of 2 strands each.
Leaving binder clip in place, braid the 3 groups together for about 24-36 in. (61 - 91.5 cm).
Coil the braid around itself to make a circle, hold coiled shape in place with T-pins.
Remove a few T-pins at a time, and with sewing needle and thread, whip stitch the braids together.
Continue to braid the lengths of yarn together, wrap the braid around into a circle shape, then sew braid in place until all yarn has been used.
Trim yarn ends. With sewing needle and thread, sew yarn ends to wrong side of Rug.
