Sailing Away Hooked Pillow



There’s a beautiful primitive style painting of a fleet of sailing ships in my small bedroom at camp. It’s difficult not to be inspired by that image and the comforting glug glug sound of the boats when I wake by my treasured Maine cove. This pattern is one of two schooner patterns I designed sipping coffee seaside. Starting with a linen foundation cloth, I hooked this piece with wide cuts (8-10) of wool, cashmere, and antique cottons.

Measure about 17.5” wide x 15.5” tall.

The backing material is antique European handspun.
