Rug Hooking the Mother’s Blue Head Scarf

Written by Cindi Gay


I chose blue for the headscarf because it is a complementary color with orange.  Brown is really just a dark orange.  I didn’t try to get too fancy with the scarf because I do not want the attention there.  I want you to notice the baby and the mother, not what the mother is wearing.  I used scraps pulled from my scrap bin.  They looked like they had been marbelized.

I filled in at her neck and may make a few adjustments there later, but for now, I will continue hooking.

I am creating an online course that goes into a lot more detail. Watch me hook every stage of a face. This will be open for enrollment in Spring 2022.
