Dixie Coyle of Steamboat Springs, Colorado, hooked this Debbie’s Horse. The quiet border actually makes the rug appear larger than it is, not closed in. Dixie used a braid from an old braided rug for the outside of the rug.

Debbie’s Horse (18 x 30)

Hooked by Anonymous 

A delightful small rug that is quick and easy to hook up. You can use a lot of your leftover wools in the border. The rug on the left appeared in the Sept./Oct. issue of Rug Hooking Magazine in an article about Paisley which was written by Cynthia Norwood. The horse, tree and cattails were all hooked with different paisleys. Big fun!

Diamond and Flowers  (22 x 34)

Hooked by Kim Vezzani

This rug is another wonderful color story of this great old pattern. Kim Vezzani, Greenock, Pennsylvania, carried the center background color out to the corner panels by using that wool for her stems. And, yes, the leaves on the left are a little larger than the ones on the right, as in the original rug. Thanks to Kim and again thanks to Barbara Benner of Red Clover Rugs for a super rug.

Dog (21 x 30)

Hooked by Barbara Riley

Barb’s daughter had a white lab – and isn’t he sweet! Notice that the “candy canes” are all about the same hue of greens/teals and become a neutral to hold the other areas of color. Love the continuous use of wools in the “border area’s” to sort of hold in all of the happiness of the rug.

Hooked by Char Marquart

Hooked by Char Marquart at Star of Texas with Jule Marie Smith. She took the pattern and did her own thing! The color play in the DOG is wonderful and her animals in the border area are neat. The best is her use of the complements – the red and the greens. We do not print the pattern like this.

I do love this pattern and the different ways it can be hooked. Debbie Curry of Verona, Pennsylvania, hooked this with Dick LaBarge at the Green Mountain Rug School. I like the way they hooked darks around the dog and created a background. The way the dog is hooked looks very old and folky.
