Add Depth to Your Design

One-Point Perspective

Although there are hundreds of patterns available in our craft, we often like to embellish or redraw a pattern, not only to personalize it, but to make it even more challenging. Rug hookers can take a realistic pattern and render it “painterly” or render it in a wider cut so as to play with textures and colors. Or they can take a primitive pattern and make it more realistic, which is what I’ve done with Pumpkin Harvest, a Honey Bee Hive pattern designed by Faith Williston. This was taught at Southern McGown Teachers Workshop by Sue Clark, of Canton, Ohio. Sue had done her crow in white, which helped provide contrast to a darker background, but my primitive hooking skills being somewhat lacking, I went for a more realistic crow in shades of medium-navy to black and put the rising moon behind to provide contrast.
