This listing is for the rug hooking pattern "Garden Retreat" on your choice of either cotton monks cloth or primitive linen. This is for the PATTERN ONLY, not the finished rug. A 4" x 6" color photo is included.
The design is 20" x 28" and is hand drawn on the backing fabric with at least 4 inch borders. Care has been taken to draw all straight lines on the grain line so that your rug will finish square. The outer raw edge of the backing fabric have been serged to prevent raveling while hooking.
This design is so named because it reminds me of an aerial view of a formal garden. My adaptation from old floral rugs has a meandering path of many different neutral patterns and textures, some over dyed and some mill dyed wools.
I hooked this design using a #8 cut (1/4" wide strips). The background is four different hand dyed muddy browns and I chose soft reds, greens, blues and neutral textures to hook the rest of the design.
Thank you for visiting and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

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.
