Huck & Bow
Your Name: Jodi Desjardins
Year Completed: 2015
Materials Used: Monks Cloth and Hand-Dyed Wool
I recently discovered the art of rug hooking and was thrilled to have found a hobby that I could express my creative side through pattern design. I am a business owner with four children and the process of designing a rug pattern and then hooking to completion is something very relaxing and gratifying for me. This is my second ever completed rug and my very first self-designed and hooked pattern that I called Huck & Bow. I am still very new to this hobby and so of course my hooking is not perfect, but the nice thing about this art is how forgiving the end result can be and still very primitively beautiful! I used pre-cut hand dyed wool that I purchased from Etsy. Most of the strips are #8 and when I needed detail I cut the strip in half. When completely hooked, I found a used vintage frame from a thrift store to finish and protect my rug.
