Same Designs Hooked by Different People

I thoroughly enjoy looking at the same design hooked by others to see how color selection and personalities change each rug.  There were three different designs hooked by others and it is fun to see the differences.

First to show is a design by Benita Raleigh named HOOTER.
The one above was hooked by Linda Woodbury.  Notice chain stitch to achieve the chevron effect in the wings, the beading patterns and directional hooking of the body.  Sure wouldn't be able to watch TV and hook this baby.  
The one above was hooked by Dee Rosenbrock who also has a chain stitched beak and feet as well as the directional hooking.  Appears she used a fuzzy yarn for the ears, and a sparkle evening sky with moon.  Great job gals ~ similar but different.

Next design hooked by 3 different people is an antique adaptation sold by Norma Batastini named Red Lion.
The Red Lion above was hooked by Charlotte Price.
The one just above was hooked by Evelyn Lawrence.
Above is my adaptation and below is the original antique.
Again it is interesting to see how people hook using what they have.

Last but not least is the newly discovered Magdalena Goat which I offer as a pattern, contact me if you are interested.  
Above is the original antique I found on an auction site January 17, 2017.
The one above was hooked by Evelyn Lawrence.
....this above hooked by me.
And not in the show but hooked by Susan Traughber, who purchased the pattern from me, is above.  Susan did a magnificent job.  Both her kids loved the rug so much that she ordered a second pattern and is hooking it again.  Hope Susan will share a picture of that with me also.  Matter of fact, anyone who hooked it I'd love for you to send me a photo of your piece.

Happy fall Sunday everyone.



  1. Thanks for sharing the all the pretty rugs from Camp. It's always interesting to see how different people hook the same rugs.

  2. I always love to see the version that people comes up with the same pattern.
    The brain is really unique in interpreting the same pattern. Availability of wool also would be a factor I presume. Always fun to see different versions.
    Hugs, Julia
