Fleece Rag Rug is Puckering

I am making a fleece rag rug and it is puckering in the middle. It is already over 3 ft wide so taking it apart is not an option I want to do. How can I take the puckering out? Thanks in advance for any help from all you great crafters out there!

Puckering may be because the stitches are too tight. Is there any room to stretch the stitches out with your fingers?

How about steaming it? Work on a stable flat surface (bathroom tile floor would be good). Place puckered area over a towel; cover rug with a pressing cloth. Dampen puckered area and iron with a steam iron. Hope this helps.
