Book Description

Learn to hook with easy step-by-step photos!

Rug hooking at its simplest is pulling loops of colourful wool fabric through a piece of linen backing to create beautiful designs for the floor or wall. In Basic Rug Hooking, you will learn what tools and materials you need to get started, and how to pull your first loops. Once you've learned and practised the basics, you will be ready to try any of the five hooked projects included. Each project includes the pattern and complete step-by-step illustrated instructions.

The styles of rugs you can make once you've learned the basic hooking process are endless. Rug hookers today create traditional florals, bright geometrics, pictorials, portraits, and primitives perfect for the modern home. Basic Rug Hooking teaches you everything you need to know to start hooking today!
