The Shelburne Mermaid/ W. Cushing & Co.

Exclusive Pattern: A classic design updated for 2017!

The Shelburne Mermaid, 15" diameter, #4- and 5-cut wool on unbleached linen. Designed by Joan Moshimer, hooked by Lisanne Miller, 2016.

The Shelburne Mermaid
is a fantastic pattern in the W. Cushing line of patterns. The pattern is a Joan Moshimer original design. The simplicity of the pattern leads the rug hooker to endless color planning and embellishing options.

The Shelburne Mermaid was almost lost forever as the pattern had somehow slipped its drawer and ended up crumpled in a corner. Luckily, she was rescued and is now ready to swim into your home.

At 15" round, The Shelburne Mermaid is a pattern that allows you to “taste” or “test” a new color palette, new techniques, and even binding options—all without investing in a huge project. Also, this pattern is the perfect “travel” project for long trips.

Pattern on linen: $25, plus S&H
Kit with pattern drawn on linen: $65 (S&H $11.95 US, S&H $17.95 Canada.) Kit includes pattern on linen, spot-dyed wool for hooking, color picture, and wool binding.
