My Review:

With easy-to-follow instructions plus dozens of photographs, worksheets, patterns, and projects, any beginner can create beautiful rugs and other hooked decorative items. From preparing, dying, and cutting the wool to making and transferring patterns, all the fundamentals are here. Learn to hook a simple design on a Checkerboard Pillow; add a border and practice finishing techniques on a Circle and Star Rug; hook a face on a Rug Doll. Go beyond the basics and try larger, more detailed projects. Turn rugs into wearables. Use polka dots or a thin strip of wool tied onto a bow to make textured pieces even more dimensional. Even create a theme for a room by repeating motifs throughout the décor--a Teddy Bear Pillow goes naturally with a matching Wall Hanging and Floor Rug. And there's a lot more, too, from table mats and purses to an unusually-shaped Welcome Rug!
