Rug Making Kits
Hooking rugs is fun and easy when you have a convenient rug making kit. You simply pull wool strips through a fabric base loop by loop. Much like the hobby of cross stitching, there are no restrictive rules, so you can even learn on your own.
One of the best ways to learn is by picking something out from Craft Club – a platform where creatives can source premium embroidery products. Here, our rug hooking kit will give you the inspiration you need as there are designs for beginners who want to have a fantastic first project or for experts who want an all-in-one solution.
What do you get in a rug making kit?
A rug making kit is similar to a flowers cross stitch kit as it comes with a variety of items for embroidery. Typically, it includes a latch hook, bundle of yarn, and braided fabric rug. Big craft stores often carry latch hook rug making kits, but if you want top-quality rugs, you should purchase kits from a company specialising in these specific supplies.
Remember that high-quality rug making kits must include all the supplies needed to complete a rug project. This is because having a perfect range of essential items allows you to sample the craft without making a considerable investment in supplies or tools.
With this, Craft Club provides you with a convenient way to get started in this hobby. Our online store is dedicated to offering you two types of products: modern rug making kits and modern cross stitch kits.
An overview of the parts and procedures
A rug hooking kit comes with a printed or painted canvas as well as short strips of acrylic yarn. The colours included will depend on what is needed to complete the design (flowers, fruits, or even abstract shapes). These kits will also come with a latch hooking tool that’s critical to completing the project. To better understand what it does, just think of it as the counterpart to the sewing needle included in our beginner cross stitch kits.
Finishing a hooked woollen rug would require you to work with broad strips of thread. They are inserted into a grid base of fabric or burlap and then secured by pulling tightly. It is also important to note that strips for rug hooking can be in any colour and is usually ¼ inch wide. As for the latch hook, it is utilised to attach the wool into the base, and as such, a premium rug making kit would tend to include a foundation that has wide holes for easy handling.

How to choose the right rug making kit?
Hand hook rug making
The hand hook style is considered to be the most traditional in the realm of rug hooking. Hand hooking generally utilises wool flannel and is done on a base of evenweave. The base can be burlap, monk’s cloth, or linen. The hand hook is a tool that looks like a crochet hook, but with a tighter frame. The largest size is for the broadest fabric strip, while the smaller size is for the thinner strips. Ideal projects for hand hooking are chair seats, wall hangings, and clothing.
However, you must know that hand hooking requires more skill and patience, even if you buy a rug making kit for this style. There are much more threads to be stitched per square inch, and the project can even have a larger thread count than a cross stitch flower project. There are also no grids to guide you, so this could pose a challenge if you don’t have a steady hand.
Needle rug making
Punch needle rug hooking is often thought of as the bigger version of the modern cross stitch hobby. You may require quite a few different needles, and each of them will be furnished with a device to manage the yarn loop’s length. Loops can be left as is or trimmed, but by controlling the device, the rug can have a sculptural quality. The punch needle method can be used with either fabric or yarn and also utilises the base of burlap or monk’s cloth.
While the punch needle rug hooking style may seem straightforward, it is still recommended that you purchase either a latch rug making kit or a cross stitching kit first as this will give you the fundamentals you need or perhaps a quick refresher if you’ve been away from the hobby.
Latch hook rug making
This technique uses a tool with an end similar to a loop turner. It takes advantage of a short-precut rug or yarn strips with each one knotted once. Essentially, latch rug hooking is used on a base of rug canvas and eliminates the time it takes for you to measure and cut materials. This is also why it is so popular and considered the easiest style by crafters around the world. To add to the simplicity, latch hooking kits include the pattern, the pre-cut yarn, the backing, and the hook – just four items and you’re ready to go.
