Welcome to VTNS (Vintage Textile and Needlework Sellers) Fan Freebie Friday!
Handmade rugs may be hooked, braided, knitted, crocheted and various other ways. They may be made small, large, round, oval, square and oblong. Whatever fits the needs of your home.
Today I’m taking a couple pages from a 1950’s Needlework How To booklet about Rug Making, specifically, Hooking a Rug.
This post, Vintage Hooked Rug Pattern has more information on rug hooking, a pattern from Minerva called Martha Washington and links to a couple good instructional YouTube videos to get you started.
The PDF file is 5 pages long so you may want to download and save it to take a look at later.
The article is in PDF format so to download it you’ll need the Adobe Reader software on your computer. Most computers come with it, but it is free and can be found here.
Download Instructions: Right-Click the link and select either “save target as” or “save link as” depending on what browser you are using or simply click on it and save or print.
