As mentioned previously, this pattern is a Lib Callaway design but it is also offered by Jan Cole.
The one row on the outer edge is hooked with wool over dyed with black walnuts. My intention was to make the outer edge look worn and aged compared to the richer Gold Dust wool just inside. Just a little something to give the aged illusion to my rug.
The variance in color in the red flowers was hooked using the same concept....to replicate fading and wear.
Have a great evening everyone. Sheesh, just think.... only 20 days until Christmas eve (sorry Lauren, I know you hate that 'C' word).
