Latch Rug Hooking
Latch Rug Hooking is a technique of weaving. It involves utilising a tool called a latch hook. It involves knotting strands of yarn through a fabric base. It is super easy once you get the hang of it. Just loop a piece of yarn around the crook of the latch hook and thread it under a section of the canvas. Next, tug the latch hook back the same way you placed it in.
The moving latch will trap the yarn and thread it over on itself, attaching it to the canvas. If this sounds difficult, you must get a latch rug hooking kit from Craft Club. Get hands-on experience and see how easy it is to become an expert in this craft. Craft Club has a wide variety of beginner-friendly kits with modern and fresh designs.
How to make a latch hook rug?

Latch hook tool
An essential thing you need to start with your latch hook project is a latch hook tool. The tool has a hook on end. It has a small hinged piece underneath it. Once you latch the hook, the hinge will open and close as you move it in and out of the canvas. It helps keep the yarn from unravelling from the hook.
The canvas serves as the base of your latch hook project. The canvas will have evenly spaced holes to push the yarn through and pull it back up to produce the natural pile effect. When you purchase a kit, the canvas will often have a printed pattern, so you know exactly where to put which colour. It is a bit like painting by numbers. You can also purchase latch hook charts.
In contrast to yarns you probably use for other yarn crafts, latch rug hooking yarns come precut into lengths and are separated by colour. This yarn for latch rug hooking projects is typically supplied in 2 ½ inch lengths.
If you want to purchase your yarn for your projects to experiment with various yarn lengths and colours, your best choice is to get a worsted to bulky weight yarn.

How to latch hook?
You’ve got your hands on your kit. Now it is time to do your first project. Follow the step-by-step process for latch hooking. Once you have mastered how to coil your yarn through the canvas, you will have this weaving technique down in no time.
Take out all the materials from the kit. The kit will contain everything you need, such as the yarn, latch hook, canvas, and instructions. Check the colours and sort them into groups.
Loop the yarn around the hook. Afterwards, loop a piece of the yarn around the crook. Keep it firmly in place by pinching it in between your fingers.
As a pro-tip, start at the bottommost left of the canvas. If you’re left-handed, start at the bottommost right.
Pass the hook through the mesh in the bottommost part of the first square. The latch hook must pass underneath the canvas then back to the top again. The latch should be above the line your canvas makes across your tool. The threaded loop should be beneath this line.
Pull your hook back through the same square of the canvas. This movement of bringing the latch through will catch the yarn. You can spread it over on itself and weave it into the canvas.
Continue across the row. Pay attention to the colours and continue until your project is finished.
Your unique latch hook project is now completed. But as a caveat, once you get started on this hobby, latch hooking can be highly addictive.
