A close-up of the two rugs side by side. Using two 3-ply ends of yarn per hole in the rug on the left makes the rug more thick and lush, the yarn blossoms to fill the area smoothly. Using one 6-ply strand of yarn per hole in the rug on the left leaves a bit of room around the yarn ends, they're not as tightly packed, so the finished project, though beautiful, is not as lush, soft and packed as the rug on the right.

Put the latch hook tool through the canvas as usual. Grab the yarn as close to the ends as possible as picture. The loop will be able to expand as much as possible so the tool and yarn will slide through with little resistance when you pull them through. Grabbing the yarn closer to the tool will make the loop small and it will be difficult to pull the tool and yarn through.

Success!!! Can you see how the four ends of the yarn angle a bit, that they're not all standing straight up? This is what we mean by the term "blossoming" - they spread out to completely fill the area.
