Latch-hooking is the latest old-school craft to experience a revival. Popular in the 1970s, latch-hooking is cool, kitsch and shockingly easy to do - think painting with numbers using wool. This book provides simple, illustrated, step-by-step methods and techniques for rugs using straightforward latch-hooking. It will provide inspiration and advice on designing your own rugs and also contain more thank 30 different rug designs which you can follow from concept to finished product. Patterns are included in graph form of the design, and will include a list of materials, quantities and colours.

About the Author

Lynda Spiro set up her Cockpit Arts Studio to make original contemporary rugs and wall art in 2004, with the help of a Cockpit Arts Seedbed Award. Her rugs, with their huge variety of colours, textures and designs, have gained rapid popularity. They have been selected and featured by the Bar Council in their inaugural showcase of designer-makers at their new offices in High Holborn, and she has been commissioned to make a rug for wall-hanging in the newly refurbished Penny Farthing Hotel in Berkhamstead, Hertfordshire.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and Fun 12 Sep 2008
By caviar
What a great book, I found the instructions really easy to follow and fun to do. The rug is looking very professional!! I would urge anyone who is thinking about starting out, to buy this book and even if you have made rugs in the past you will get a lot of ideas from it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun creative for all ages 26 Oct 2008
This book was a lot more informative then I thought it would be. It was fun, easy to follow, and left me feeling a more creative person.

I would recommend this book to anybody looking to give as a unique gift, or looking to pick up a new past time.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the few modern books on this topic 14 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Nicely produced book at a reasonable price. I would have liked to see fewer patterns for stripes and more ideas for more complex patterns. Would recommend for beginners rather than experts.
