Thought I'd show what progress has been made to the Lori Brechlin design known as "Lancaster Barnyard". You can purchase this PDF design from Lori by clicking the link and purchasing from her etsy site.
Had the pattern for a couple years and finally working on it. Am hooking mostly #8.5 with some #8. The leaves are a mixture of bright and dull/dark herringbone and another dull plaid. Figured that if hooked in the 1880s it would have been hooked with whatever they had anyway. The dark/dull herringbone is a rescued man's suit coat.
