This rug hooking kit is drawn on a lovely cotton monks cloth backing. It comes with all the wools cut in one quarter inch strips necessary to complete the kit along with the pattern, rug binding, a color key, and easy to follow instructions. The only other items you will need to get started are a small embroidery or quilting hoop which can be purchased at any craft or fabric shop and a rug hook. I started off with a wooden quilting hoop and did several rugs on that before switching to a floor frame. As for hooks I have always used a Moshimer hook and there is an option in the listing to add one to your order for the great price of $9.00. I can't tell you how many people have taught themselves traditional rug hooking (not latch hook) using these kits.
The pattern measures 9 X 9 inches and would make a great wall hanging, table centerpiece, trivet or hot pad. Lots of people hang these hand hooked mats from old cupboards or make little pillows out of them. The wools used are mostly hand dyed and all have been washed so they are ready for your project. The cardinal is done in two reds and the background with two similar blues. The border around the circle is done in a rich deep eggplant and for a finishing touch I added two rows of complimentary over dyed plaid.
If you have any questions please google primitive rug hooking or email me, There are several video demonstrations on the internet.
