Get ready to learn rug hooking…
Here are the simple steps:
How to rug hook
- Push hook into the backing.
Put the hook in where it makes sense — do NOT count threads!
- Scoop up the wool from underneath with the hook.
Move the hook, not the wool. Wrapping the wool onto the hook will cause twists.
- Pull the wool to the surface and adjust the height of the loop.
Pull it up as high as it is wide.
- Repeat a million times.
Concentrate on pulling the loops up high enough and spreading them apart. Avoid overcrowding.
