The Royal Couple
King and Queen, 42” x 42”, #3-cut wool on rug warp. Designed by Pris Buttler, hooked by Sibyl Osicka, Parma, Ohio, 2016.
I always wanted to hook a King and Queen with sheep faces. And I’ve always wanted to hook the costumes and clothing worn by royalty during the era of Henry the 8th. So why not combine these two ideas? I asked Pris Buttler to design a pattern for me of sheep royalty wearing their fancy dress. I was thrilled with what she came up with and couldn’t wait to begin.
