Sam Sheepherd is a handsome fellow who was created way back in 2010 and has been out to pasture for a few years (retired). Due to several requests we have brought him back and we are all thrilled. He can be purchased as a pattern on monks cloth or linen or as a kit. The kit will come with the pattern, all woolens, and the spindle legs. You will need a needle and thread to assemble him, some fiberfil, black paint and wire (optional). He is really fun to see come to life. Sam is a big guy measuring 12 x 18, not including his legs.
All of our patterns are drawn on monks cloth, paying close attention to the straight of the grain. Linen is available for an extra fee. Please select the pattern or kit you would like on the right hand side.
Patterns and kits come with a colored cover photo, unless otherwise noted, including a rug recipe card with our recommended woolen amounts and the size of strip we used to hook it. However, you may hook using whatever size strips you would like.
Kits include the pattern and all woolens needed to hook the design. We have included wool amounts that we used (plus a bit extra) to hook the rug. We realize that all hookers hook differently. Some hookers hook much looser and will have leftover wool, some hook higher or tighter and may need extra. We encourage you to keep all wool tags that label your wool as well as your rug recipe card, in the event you may need to purchase more.
The wool in your kit does NOT come cut into strips. Due to time constraints, we are not able to cut larger kits anymore. If you are a new hooker, please check out our New Hookers section for a selection of smaller kits that we still do offer our cutting services for, as we realize not all new hookers have a cutter.
