Recently, I found myself trying something new: punch needle rug hooking. It’s pretty amazing. After a few small, freeform rugs about 2 inches by 2 inches, I decided to dive into this much bigger 18 inch circular design.

I could envision this being the covering for a cool, round stool, or something similar. But in actuality, this will likely just be another practice piece. With the holidays coming, I have an idea for some cool hooked rug pillows to gift.

This piece is worked up on monk’s cloth using a bulky weight yarn and a Amy Oxford punch needle #10. You can purchase these incredible punch needles here–but be prepared to wait. Apparently the rug hooking craze is here and Oxford punch needles are in high demand.

What new makes have you tried?
