Geometric Doodling - Part 1

Play with fine cuts in a new way

By: Sandra L. Brown

Although geometric patterns have been with us since the beginning of rug hooking, when rug hookers would draw grid lines using the warp and weft of the fabric to create repetitive patterns or single out certain squares to highlight with different colors, the idea of hooking a more free-form style of geometric has come into its own. Taking a basic shape—usually a square—and throwing down a random “set line” to then add pattern t, intentionally as a sub-conscious exercise, creates patterns within patterns that can be added to, elaborated upon, and then—voila!—a geometric rug pattern emerges just waiting to be filled with woolen loops.
