This listing is for the KIT to hook my design "Red Cardinal 10" x 12". It includes a wool pack and a hand drawn pattern.
Each kit includes:
1. The pattern on cotton monks cloth or primitive linen, select your choice.
2. 100% wool fabrics that I have hand dyed and/or mill dyed wool fabrics. Choose to have your wool sent to you UNCUT as in the photo or CUT in #8 (1/4" wide) strips.
3. Instructions of where to use the colors in the wool pack and a color photo. It does NOT include instructions on how to hook.
You will need a primitive rug hook, a rug hooking frame or hoop and edging to finish the edges of the design. I decided to add a prodded edge to my red cardinal rug and finished it into a pillow (see photo 5).
I chose bright reds and a dull red plaid for the cardinal and also added those to the border, a bright gold for the beak and feet, green for the pine needles and neutrals for branches and background. I added a bit of black and white honeycomb for interest.
I used leftovers from my project to prod the edges. You could use your stash to do this too, it doesn't have to match exactly with the wool in the kit. A couple of these wools are listed separately, the green stripe and the big red plaid. Do a search of my mill dyed wools to see these and others that might work well for the proddy strips. You would need an eighth yard piece if you want a wool fabric back for a pillow back.
If you would like to purchase JUST the pattern, see listing P213:

Cotton Monks Cloth is 100% cotton woven with two warp threads and two weft threads has 12 x 13 holes per inch. It is great for hooking with all cuts of wool, from fine to primitive cuts. It is less expensive than primitive linen.
Primitive linen is 100% linen, the most durable backing fabric. It is more expensive than other backing fabrics. The evenly spaced weave of 12 x 12 threads per inch makes it great for all primitive cuts, #7 and wider.
Beginners usually have an easier time hooking with linen.
Both are fine and long lasting choices for the backing to support and make your hooked rug durable. I use both types, but usually choose linen for larger projects.
Yes, if the difference is $3.00 or more. Etsy calculations, especially on orders with multiple items, can add up to more than the actual shipping. I will let you know when your order is ready to ship if you will be receiving a shipping refund.
