Rug Hooking PATTERN, Primitive Sheep, 18" x 18", P197, Folk Art Sheep Design, DIY Primitive Rug Hooking Pattern


Shipping to United States: $4.75

This listing is for the rug hooking PATTERN "Primitive Sheep". This is for the PATTERN ONLY, not the finished rug.
A 4" x 6" photo comes along with the pattern.

The design is 18" x 18" and is hand drawn on either monks cloth or primitive linen, your choice. The foundation fabric has 4" borders to make it fit on most rug hooking lap frames or in a 14" hoop. The outside raw edges of the backing fabric have been served to prevent raveling while hooking.

It is a fun rug to hook. I used a #8 cut to hook this design. Use up your leftovers for a "she used what she had" folk art look. It will hook up quickly and become a favorite in your "sheep" rug collection. For those of you planning to take a class or workshop, it would be a great choice for beginners.

I hooked the background with a mix of gold textures and plaids. For the sheep I used off white and tan textured wools. The ground was a muted khaki plaid and the edge scallops various reds, blues and golds. The border and sheep face and legs are a combination of a brown/black herringbone and a brown/black honeycomb texture.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Custom and personalized orders

    Please feel free to contact me about special orders by clicking on the "request a custom order" button. I have a lot of inventory that is not listed.

    If you are looking for a specific color or texture, I will be happy to check my inventory. If you are able to send a photo, that is a great help to me in understanding what you are looking for.

    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.

    Which Backing Fabric should I choose?

    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.

    Do you refund shipping overage charges?

    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.
