Latch hook is a fun, easy craft that allows you to create pictures and designs by knotting pieces of yarn on a mesh canvas. Latch hook is wonderfully diverse. Designs can be squares, rectangles, or specialty shapes. They can be simple or complex. The completed pieces can be finished in a variety of ways, from rugs or pillows to holiday stockings or wall hangings.

How to Do:
Fold an edge over one or two times and whip stitch around the edge until secure. Repeat on all for sides to bind the edges of the rug.Push your hook through a square. The hook will need to go under and through.Wrap the yarn around the base of the hook and pull the yarn around the top part of the hook.Begin pulling down on the hook. The small arm will close around the hook and wrap around the yarn. 6-7. Continue pulling down through the hole.Repeat in every square until you have a finished rug!
