Easy to follow instructions. Anyone can make this rug in a day after you have all your prep work done. Seller will answer any questions you may have. Very nice and friendly. I would buy more patterns from this seller.

thank you for figuring this pattern out so I do not have to do that. I have not made it yet but will soon. It will be all cotton. Again, thank you!

Easy to read instructions. ..not so easy to do when you're being distracted every few minutes..I have to work on it after everyone has gone to sleep....at least until I get the hang of increasing in the turns. Thankful to FINALLY have a pattern...youtube helps but having an actual pattern in your hands is invaluable! Thanks so much for taking the time to write all of this down for us lost and confused beginners out here in never never land!
I love to create with my hands!
It all started with quilting scraps. I was locker hooking my fabric scraps and people wanted to know what in the world I was doing"?? Because of the overwhelming interest, in 1999, I ended up writing and self-publishing the first and most comprehensive book on locker hooking with fabric entitled, "Locker Hooking With Fabric Strips". It is a complete book for beginners to advanced. In 2009, I went "green" with ebooks & epatterns, as well as wrote a smaller instructional ebooklet for beginners entitled, "The Basics: Locker Hook A Mug Rug". There is a video of my ebooklet at: www.lockerhooking.com
Locker hooking is "an old rug hooking technique" using a locker hook (crochet hook with a large needle 'eye' on other end for yarn), latch hook rug canvas, yarn, and fabric strips. The locker hook is inserted into each square and the fabric strip is pulled up to the top of the canvas (making loops). When you have about 10 loops on the locker hook shaft, the locker hook and yarn (which is attached to the needle 'eye' end) are pulled through all the loops, which "lock the loops in place". It's very easy! And you can make beautiful & functional things like rugs, wall hangings, clothes, baskets, home and personal accessories!
I also love to crochet and have designed and self-published several popular crochet epatterns. My crochet rag rug patterns are the most popular :-) But my favorite is crocheting with wool and felting into beautiful bowls! I sell them at Holiday Shows.
When one of my daughters had a baby I made an "Alaskan Stuffie" from fleece and they just kept multiplying! They are stuffed soft polar fleece crazy-eyed creatures with pockets for treasures and all have big hearts. They are for all ages! I have a "Stuffies Video" at: www.lockerhooking.com
I am also a CZT (Certified Zentangle® Teacher) and teach Zentangle® Art classes in Anchorage, Alaska. I was trained by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas, founders of Zentangle®, in Providence, Rhode Island. The Zentangle® Method™ is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way of creating beautiful abstract art by drawing structured patterns (called tangles). There are many therapeutic benefits to this beautiful "meditative art"! I offer several tutorials from classes I have taught. For more info: www.tanglealaska.com
