Patterns & Kits for Rug Hooking - Large Antique

Click the category of interest to jump to that section of my kits & patterns.

The Olde Pomegranate Tree

Taken from an 1800s hooked rug, this pattern is interesting and naive. Birds and lions, suns and flowers sit on either side of the old tree. This is a photo of the antique rug, which uses a dark background and a variety of golden tones. The Hook-a-Month project used a lighter background and employed blues, grays and rust tones.

25 x 18 inches

Polly’s Hearts

My friend and sister hooker, Polly Minick, had a friend who owned this antique rug at one time. Polly gave her permission for me to offer it as the Hook-a-Month project  for Spring 2010. I made some slight tweaks in the design, at Polly’s request, to honor her friend who has passed away.

Midnight Floral

The antique rug on which this Hook-a-Month design was based, is an antique shirred rug. Shirred rugs were made from woolen strips that were drawn up and sewn onto a linen foundation. The design is naïve and most probably was executed with old clothing. The antique rug was probably from New England, circa 1830-1840. This is my adaptation as a hooked rug.  

25 x 34 inches

Antique Stars

This is a wonderful rug to use wools that have been married together - several reds, several blacks and browns, and several tans (lights and darks) will get you this great aged look.

Magdelena’s Cat

She was an amazing pattern designer. Magdelena Briner’s rugs have inspired us all to hook with abandon and just let the rug create itself.

This is a favorite and I am happy to offer it in two sizes on primitive linen.:
