The Pomegranate is the third project in Amy Oxford's book, Punch Needle Rug Hooking: Your Complete Resource to Learn & Love the Craft. Designed by artist Cotey Gallagher, this is a great kit for those who have learned the basics of punch needle and want to expand on their skill set. It was designed to teach how to approach a more detailed piece that includes finer details. The project also teaches how to use two different Oxford Punch Needle sizes to enhance a design. (The piece uses a #9 regular Oxford Punch Needle for the pomegranates, flowers, leaves, and vines and #10 regular Oxford Punch Needle for the background. Raising the objects really makes them stand out!) The finished project can be used in a variety of ways including a wall hanging, tabletop decoration, or pillow. The pattern is 14" x 14" but additional border rows are added to create a 17" x 17" finished size.
- 1 piece of 24" x 24" serged monk's cloth with pre-traced pattern.
- A generous amount of 100% wool rug yarn.
- Includes a diagram and list for color placement and needle size.
Note that this kit does not include directions. It has been designed to use with the detailed instructions found in Amy's book.
