Once you have squared the seat frame, you can begin rushing the seat all around the frame. Working with an approximately 20-foot length of rush, tack it to the side rail near the rear legs and loop it around all the rails (above, left). Keep working around the chair using the same pattern (above, right). When you get to the end of a length of rush, clamp it temporarily to the seat frame to keep it taut and attach it to a new piece using a figure eight knot. Locate the knots on the underside of the seat so they will not be visible.
