This was really an experiment. We wanted to play with different heights and textures and incorporate them into her hooking. While we have played with proddy before We have also playing with stitches and thought we could use the methods for some of our favorite stitches and use it with wool strips and hooking. Join us as we play with stitch weaving a beehive that will jump up off the hooked rug. Vines will pop out of the hooking as well as berries, leaves and oh, just look at that cute little bee. You can choose just the pattern drawn on monks cloth or linen, with full instructions or the entire kit that will come with the pattern drawn on monks cloth or linen, the woolens and instructions. You will need some thread in gold, green, brown and black and a bit of fiberfil. The finished product is 10 x 14 inches.
Be sure to view our companion video below as we documented each step of this wonderful and fun project.
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.
