1776 American Flag Primitive Rug Hooking Pattern



I have a great love of hooking my wonky stripes, and I went big this time with an area rug rather than a pillow or smaller cushion. This piece is hooked with an assortment of wool and cashmere in cuts from 8 to 10. It was easy to abandon myself to the freestyle hooking of imagined windy day flapping flags. The piece moved along quickly, and I love how it all turned out.

This pattern assumes general knowledge of rug hooking and transfer techniques.  You will need Adobe Reader to open and print the pattern.  Adobe is available for free online if you need it.
