We are proud to supply the rug hooking community with the highest standard in quality patterns and kits. We love to hook rugs too so we know what you want.
We draw by hand every pattern individually with a permanent marking pen in strong sharp lines. Each time the pattern is drawn by the artists there are small details that will be a little different to add to the handmade individuality of each piece. No assembly line here, but be sure, the design is always straight on the backing.
The margins of the pattern are generous enough to allow the rug to be moved easily on the frame, even when working at the edge of the design. There is also a little extra room to be creative with the border. We leave at least 4 inches and usually five inches per side.
You have your choice of your favorite backing material - Linen, Monks cloth, or Rug warp.
Linen is the strongest and most durable backing fabric. We use traditional unbleached 2-ply linen with 13 by 13 threads per inch. It is a tight enough weave for hooking with fine cuts or yarn but comfortable up to an #8 (1/4 inch) strips. A looser weave primitive linen (12 by 12 threads per inch) may be available by special request
Monks cloth is a lightweight cotton backing with 24 by 26 threads per inch. It is popular for its soft hand and how it adapts for most any size cut. It moves easily to accommodate all but the largest width strips. For fine shading, it is great because it will allow you to add just a few loops almost anywhere you want them to go. Needle punchers, we didn't forget about you. We would be happy to draw any pattern reversed (at no extra charge). Just add a note to the order and we'll be happy to oblige.
Rug warp is a heavier cotton backing with 11 by 13 threads per inch. It is especially good for very large rugs which tend to lose their shape.
We hope you enjoy browsing our rug patterns. Our site and so many others showcase many ideas that will give your imagination a kick start. Maybe you'll be inspired to draw a design of your own. Please refrain from copying patterns from our site or other designers who sell their work. It takes time and talent to design attractive hookable patterns. Please respect copyright law.
