Written on the pattern was #211-"KIRMAN"- Jacqueline Hansen, Scarborough, Maine CR-25 It is stamped on verel which I have never hooked on so it was interesting to have the experience but I'm not inclined to use it again. Also because it was stamped it did not run neatly along the grain. This meant when I did the outer edge, I had to keep jumping rows to keep the line straight.
I hooked it with #3 cut wool all compliments of my stash. I outlined the yellow flower centers with a single strand pulled from a length of dark blue wool yarn, sort of like separating the strands from embroidery thread. Although cute as a button on its own, I felt it needed a little something to frame it and Christine sells factory made decorative rug fringe that fit the bill. The tassels were too long for the size of this rug and needed to be trimmed so I taped it to the edge of a table and then cut the tassels to uniform length.
I felt the fringe showed too much white for the proportion of the rug so to break it up I threaded one ply of the wool I used for the whipped edge and a piece of the wool I used to outline the yellow flower centers through the cotton fringe band using my whipping needle. I then put binding tape on the back and finished it off per the usual. I really enjoyed hooking this little beauty and I'm thinking I might like to do something like this again. I would like to try it with a different backing as the verel or divider cloth as it is sometimes called, was not to my liking. Without the fringe the rug is 12 1/2" x 10 1/2" and with the fringe 17 x 10 1/2".
