With a friendly new approach to an age-old craft, this book offers over a dozen colourful, contemporary designs inspired by traditional rug hooking techniques for purses, pillows, pictures and gifts, as well as a traditional rug.
Inspired by folk art and primitive art, Carole Rennison shows how easy yarn hooking is, providing hooking tips and advice on how to choose the right fabric, wool yarn and equipment.
She also demonstrates how to plan and develop ideas, how to choose the right colours and how to complete the designs with a professional finish. The book includes a thorough techniques section that shows how to prepare for hooking, the basic hooking technique and how to finish off your work.
The projects range from simple to more complex, appealing to beginners and to more experienced crafters.
Each project comes with diagrams, a colour key for simple yarn colour reference and beautiful photographs of the finished design that will surely inspire.
In addition, a to-scale template sheet with all the essential motifs for the designs is included at the back of the book, so you can trace and start your creations right away.
