This listing is for the rug hooking PATTERN "Cat and Flowers". My design is an adaptation of an antique rug I found doing research on line. That old rug is featured in the third photo.
I hooked this rug with an 8-1/2 cut and hooked "higglety-pigglety style, meaning loops are not the same height, twisting and turning each loop and not hooking in rows. It gives an old primitive look. I used all my grungiest, dirtiest, dull colors, using only grayed whites or tan textures for the flowers and vines, dusty reds and pinks, blues and greens for flowers and leaves, always using textures. The cat was hooked with a mix of gray textures. The background is a mix of many different browns, blacks and khaki textures. It's a great design to use up some of your stash.
This listing DOES NOT include the hooked rugs shown in the photos.
The design is 24" x 36" and is hand drawn on the backing fabric of your choice, either monks cloth or primitive linen.**
I leave 4" borders on each side to fit over your rug frame or hoop. Great care has been taken to draw all straight lines on the grain line so that your rug will finish square. The outside raw edges of the foundation fabric have been serged to prevent raveling.
** See FAQ for differences between monks cloth and primitive linen.

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.
