Tutorial: Introduction to Rug-Hooking
Wooden Frame
(start with a small size like 10”x10”)
Rug Hook
Burlap (start small, ¼
larger than the frame)
Permanent marker
Pushpins (thumbtacks, I usually use the flat brass ones)
Yarn (100% wool works best, but acrylic will also do)1.
Cut your burlap to ¼”
larger than your frame, in this case 10.5”x10.5”. If you need
to make a frame the easiest way is to cut 4 pieces the same length and usingwood glue and a screw attach them as you see above.2. Using your sewing machine sew a zig-zag stitch on the edge of the burlap, tokeep it from coming unravelled. (you can hook without this step, it just helps tokeep the burlap together)3.
Draw a square on your burlap, approximately 7.5”x7.5”. Decide o
n your design,and draw it inside the square (starting with something simple, and geometric isusually easiest).

4. Attach the burlap to your frame with the pushpins. Ensure the burlap is taughtacross the frame, using as many pins as necessary.5. It is best to start by outlining all your shapes, and then filling them in later. Thiswill give you smaller spaces to work with at one time.
