Product Details


Booklist May 2019

For crafters who want to expand their yarn-based know-how, Rennison offers inspiration and, perhaps, anew craft to try. Rug hooking, which consists of pulling yarn (often wool) in loops through a fabric, is an older, folk-art cousin to latch hooking, and Rennision takes care to set up the reader with clear instructions and informative, beautiful four-color photos. She dedicates the first third of the book to materials,techniques from starting to finishing, and—always useful to crafters working with yarn—possible substitutions and helpful quick tips. Readers would be wise to start from the beginning, as the introductorysection offers American English translations of the British English terms used throughout the book. The projects range from wearable pins to a pillow to a Christmas stocking, and Rennison provides enough guidance and background for adventurous rug hookers to create their own designs. Crafters looking for anew, folk-art influenced project will find inspiration to sink their hook into here.— Mary Kravenas
