(I just posted this under "Miscellaneous" and thought I would also post it under "Floor").

Even after carefully checking "This Old House" and "Jacobsen Rugs" sites, I still can't figure out how to install this 26" wide runner so that the 4 1/2" wide strips on either edges keep connecting and make the turn where the "winder" is.

Anyone ?

And thank you so much in advance !

You'll have some waste.

Diagonal slices or miters which match the angle and rise matching the boarder (like the corners of a picture frame for example)then seam your runner. You can oversew it, use seaming tape with adhesive or do both (recommend using stitched seaming tape and oversewing with a curved needle since a staircase runner gets a lot of use/stress). You'll have to return your miter (for the outside edge of the tread to a straight seam for the next rise (face of the next step), you'll have to repeat this process for each pie shaped tread.

If you have a simple boxed landing with simple stairs off-set 90 degrees, then you just continue the lower runner to the landing, and run the upper runner to the landing and do a simple miter at 45 degrees across the intersection of the two runners on the landing.
