Tips for Hooking Big Rugs

-Make sure you start out with enough wool to complete your large rug.

-You don't have to use every colour throughout the entire rug, using a similar shade in different areas works well and will keep the design light.

-Have the rug set up on a frame in a visible place so that you get into the habit of hooking a little bit every day. This is a good habit to get into. 

-If you're getting bored make a design or colour change instead of putting the whole thing away. 

-Try not to get held up by not knowing what colour to use in an area, you can remove a small area of colour at any point without affecting the rest of your rug. 

-Borders are a good way to tie together a large rug.

-Big rugs are hard to complete sometimes so stay focused on just getting it done and not necessarily making it perfect in every way. 

-Be patient, you won't know how it's going to look until it's done and you can step back from it and see it for what it is. 

-You can create a big rug out of small patterns that you've repeated over the whole rug.
