This is the comprehensive reference on rug hooking and braiding skills for all fiber artists, especially those looking for a comprehensive guide to combining the two arts into fascinating and creative projects. Filled with photographs and diagrams, the instruction in techniques is clear and detailed with a range of skills for the beginner and advanced artisan. Follow step-by-step instructions to learn how to make centers for rugs or other objects and then move expertly into hooked borders and fancy braids. Learn how to make borders using both arts stacked in multiple layers. Three complete beginning-to-end projects are included that you can use to practice the integration of hooking and braiding: a braided tote bag with a hooked pocket, a braided chair pad with a hooked border, and a lacy braided trivet. In addition to this clear and creative approach to combining rug hooking and braiding, the book is filled with supply lists, a gallery, tips, FAQs, and resources.
