What is rug hooking?
Before you purchase a rug hooking kit online and create masterpieces on the canvas, it helps to understand what this type of art is all about first. Here are some specifics and applications of this fascinating hobby.
The ins and outs of crafting a rug
Essentially, rug hooking (also commonly referred to as latch hooking) is the manual process of making a rug. As suggested by its name, a hook with a latch is used to pull the yarn from one side of the mesh canvas to the other.
To better grasp the concept, just think of rug hooking as something similar to modern cross stitch sewing, but with materials that are much larger in size. Instead of using a needle with a thin piece of thread attached to the hoop, a rug hooking kit allow you to follow the print design by moving a hook latch back and forth.
While this process takes time, you won’t notice the hours passing as the experience in itself is already part of the fun. After utilising the premium rug making tools at Craft Club, you’ll end up with a handmade product that is sure to last for many years.
Showing off your creations
The rugs and mats you make using our rug hooking supplies can be used for both decorative and functional purposes. For example, you can give your home an added punch of vibrance when you display your latch hook mats on your floor or maybe even on your wall and furniture.

How can I learn rug hooking?
With the help of Craft Club, learning rug hooking will be incredibly easy. All you have to do is buy a rug hooking kit and then follow the instructions below.
- Start by unpacking all the rug-making supplies from a rug hooking kit. Be sure to place the base canvas, latch hook, and pieces of yarn beside you for a smooth experience.
- With your non-dominant hand, take one piece of yarn and fold it in half. Note that you should end up with a ‘U’ shape afterwards.
- Pick up your latch hook and thread it in between the ‘U’ shape you just made. Then, push your latch hook through one of the mesh squares on the base canvas.
- Once the top part of your hook is through, ensure that the latch is open. This part is important as the open latch is responsible for making the distinct knot.
- Take the ‘U’ shape yarn and drag it over the open latch. Secure its position, and in one controlled motion, pull the hook away from the canvas to make a knot.
- If the wool for latch hook rugs starts to frill, simply cut the protruding parts for a clean look. You can even start over as we provide you with a bunch of extra yarn pieces to work with.
Get comfortable and repeat the steps for every mesh square. Now that you know the basics of how to get started with rug hooking, it’s time to put your new skills to the test!
