This listing is for the rug hooking PATTERN for "Chicken Mat #3", 8" x 8" This is for the pattern only. A 4" x 6" photo is included with the pattern.
If you know how to hook or are planning to take a class, this is a great beginner project. Perfect for this time of year! I used a reversible black/white dotted wool fabric (https://www.etsy.com/listing/958593513/black-tie-reversible-a-mill-dyed-wool?ref=shop_home_active_32) for the chicken. How fun!
For the background I used a very pale gray herringbone (https://www.etsy.com/listing/895623313/gray-lady-a-mill-dyed-wool-for-rug?ref=shop_home_active_10). A bit of red for the comb and wattle and some yellow gold for the beak adding all to the border to coordinate.

I hand draw the pattern on your choice of cotton monks cloth or primitive linen. The foundation fabric measures about 19" x 20" to make it fit on most lap top frames or in a 14" hoop. The raw edges have been serged to prevent raveling while hooking.
If you need a hook, see my selection in Hooking Supplies: https://www.etsy.com/shop/DesignsInWool?ref=listing-shop2-all-items-count§ion_id=7706447
You will also need a hoop or frame to rug hook. Search on Etsy for suppliers of these items.

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.
