Directions for Punching Busy Bee
Busy Bee, 8" x 8", 3- and 4-ply wool yarn on linen. Designed by Isa Beniston and punched by Christie Beniston, PUNCH! Studio, Solana Beach, California, 2018.
Busy Bee was punched with an Oxford punch needle. If you are new to punch needle rug hooking, be sure to read The Oxford Punch Needle Handbook that comes with the Oxford Punch Needle, as this will tell you everything you need to know to be an excellent puncher! Amy Oxford’s book, Punch Needle Rug Hooking: Techniques and Designs is even more detailed than the handbook if you would like more in-depth directions and want to learn more about the craft.
