Shipping to United States: Free

Cottage Retreat, a DIY Rug Hooking PATTERN, hand drawn and ready to hook on your choice of either cotton monks cloth or primitive linen. The design is 28" x 32". A 4" x 6" photo is included. For more info on foundation fabrics see FAQ.

Care has been taken to draw all straight lines on the grain line so that your rug will finish square. The foundation fabric has 4" extra border around the design to make it fit on your frame. The outer raw edges of the fabric have been serged to prevent raveling while hooking.

The finished sample was hooked by my sister, Carol. We worked on a color plan together that incorporated soft primitive colors. The cottage is hooked with weathered whites and a gray/brown plaid roof. The house is surrounded by a forest of green with patches of rose and yellow shrubbery out the front door. Imagine they are beds of roses :)
Faded primitive purples were hooked for the sky. Neither of us had used much purple in our rugs...I love how it gives a touch of mystery to the "sky" or "deeper woods". It's such an old fashioned color. The outer borders used all the colors that were in the center of the rug.

This would be a fun rug to hook up your cabin in the woods or at the lake, using the colors that you decorate with.

    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.
