This listing is for a pattern of my design, Black Capped Chickadee 10" x 12". This is for the PATTERN ONLY. A 4" x 6" color photo is included with the pattern.
I hand draw the design on a 20" x 19" piece of foundation fabric to make it fit on most rug hooking lap frames or in a 14" hoop. The raw edges have been serged to help prevent raveling while hooking.
You will need wool fabric, a hook, and a frame or heavy duty hoop to hook this pattern. It could also be punched with yarn.

See my selection of hooks in the supplies section:
I have included photos of my finished sample to give you an idea of how I hooked it.
I love how fast this pattern hooked up, using black, white and gray for the chickadee, green and brown/gray plaid for leaves and branches, red and orange for the berries and grayed blue textures for the background. For the border, I hooked used the leftovers from bird and berries and hooked rows of colors.
If you are planning to learn to rug hook this is a great beginning project. I recommend that you sign up for a class or workshop in your area.

Special Orders are non returnable. Wool Kits and Wool Packs that have been cut in strips for rug hooking are not refundable.
Designs and patterns that have been customized and/or personalized cannot be returned.
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.
