Students are welcome to trace one McAdoo Rugs pattern of any size in class (you provide the monk’s cloth). Each pattern comes with a color photo and a list of yarn amounts needed. We have albums with beautiful color photographs of hundreds of patterns to choose from. If you want to make a smaller project, we also have lots of patterns for chair pads, pillows, and wall hangings. The only hard part is figuring out what to make! We do sell these patterns all drawn up if you don't want to trace your own.
The technique of punching loops is easy and can be learned in a few short hours. The joy of turning these loops into something beautiful can be a lifelong pursuit. The Oxford Rug Hooking School is dedicated to promoting expert craftsmanship and helping students to discover the unlimited artistic possibilities of this medium. We offer a supportive and creative environment where skills and artistry can flourish.
