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).
love your rug! as always I learn something every time I visitReplyDelete
I love the idea of shading for age. It is looking great. I pulled my very first loops last night. I'm much slower than those folks on YouTube 😊 I need to cut more strips tonight (#6 cutter.)ReplyDelete
Your rug is looking very nice. I'm all tuckered out tonight and off to bed.ReplyDelete
You have gotten LOTS done!ReplyDelete
You can say the "C" word now that's it's December and I have most of the decorating done except for the big tree.
Sure do love this rug!!! Hope you get your wool soon!! All the shading makes it look so old....and perfect!!
Hope you enjoy your week!
Great color choices and I love how the variations look.ReplyDelete
