Jeanne Benjamin will teach just about any pattern, but when it comes to hooking for herself, she chooses Orientals, antique-looking primitives, or pictorials. She had printed a pattern of Anatolian for a customer but decided to hook it herself when she discovered that the pattern was not quite square on the fabric.

Jeanne prefers to hook Orientals using a traditional Oriental palette. "Since my last two Orientals had a red or blue field, I went with golds for a change," she says. "The three golds are three different formulas of mine that worked out well when I mixed them together and hooked them in small areas. One is gold, one is bronzy, and the third is a dull orange."
