Whimsical Designs for Rug Hooking
This pattern was designed for my Color Planning Class at the Spring Has Sprung Workshop & Hook In. (see Classes for more info) for a more complex Color Harmony. This pattern has endless possibilities for fun in colors, textures and embellishments.It is a design that would work well for using up your worms. Whether you prefer Traditional Folk Art or Contemporary this pattern will do both well. What a beautiful pillow or purse this would be!
Confetti Border: To begin your confetti border, hook 1 row of your base border color all around. In the second row hook 3-6 loops of one of your colors form the center of your rug, then hook 3 -6 loops of your border color. Repeat for this second row mixing up your colors. It works best if you are consistent with the number of loops for your confetti colors and border color. For 3 rd row hook one row using border color only. For 4th row repeat the 2nd row of confetti colors. Your last row should be only your border color.
