Who Said You Have to Hook a Lion in Fine Cuts?
Do you like the look of realism in hooked rugs but only hook using wide cuts? Do you think it’s impossible to obtain realism with a wide cut? Well, keep an open mind, step outside your comfort zone, and see what you can create!
I’ve been hooking realistic animals for many years. Most of my projects are #4 cuts and while people admire them, many say, “I couldn’t do that; I only hook with wide cuts.” I explained textures were my secret to realism and you can use wide cuts. I saw the skeptical looks and decided the time had come to create an example. That one example turned into a series, and I’d like to share them with you.
