Adapted from a visual aid of a mountain lion and designed and hooked by Judy Carter, Willow Street, Pennsylvania, 2008.
Featured in: Celebration XIX
"The alert look in the eyes of this mountain lion is what attracted me to the photo and made me decide to create the pattern. This rug helped me understand the challenges of hooking an animal that was mainly one color. The absence of stripes, spots, and color changes, makes the hooking a challenge. My biggest lesson with this rug was the skin folds formed by the turn of the head. When I first hooked them, they were too dark and looked like stripes. I needed to decrease the contrast to make them look realistic."
