Locker-Hooking, part two
Click here to go part 1 to read a little about locker hooking and how I dyed the roving used in the rug.
Prepare the canvas by turning 2 rows under on each edge, and sew by hand or by machine using a "zig-zag" stitch.
Trace the pattern onto the canvas.
A close-up look at the locker hook.

I finished the edge by spinning a bulky single ply yarn, and using a tapesty needle to whip stitch the edge of the canvas.
