How to Finish a Hooked or Punched Pillow

A visual guide

By: Rebecca Martin
Punched Pillow

Punch needle rug hooking and traditional rug hooking are different sides of the same coin. Both use the running loop stitch; both are a delightful way to create beautiful fiber arts and crafts. The pillow shown here was both hooked and punched. The shapes were hooked with a variety of strip sizes, ranging from #4 to #7. Once the hooking was complete, the work was flipped on the frame, and the background was punched with a bulky-weight rug yarn, using an Oxford #10 regular-sized needle. Those new to punch needle rug hooking might find a hybrid project like this a good place to start.
