Looking at my first image (the back, selvage, and kilim end) you can see that the width of one selvage cord is the same at the width of both nodes of a single knot, thus two warps, at least.
Right. But to my eye, it doesn't look like that in the photos of the rug from the pile side. Those make the edge look like a single cord overcast in red. Does the rug look that way in real life?
