how to make a latch rug

Answer:

Most people start with a kit consisting of a painted canvas, sufficient cut yarn to complete the project, and a latch hook. 1. Bind the edges of the canvas either with rug binding or with temporary tape to prevent raveling. 2. Take a piece of yarn of a color that's used at your starting edge. Fold it in half. 3. Insert your latch hook under the thread of the canvas that is the same color as the yarn. 4. Insert the fold of the yarn into the hook. 5. Pull the hook back out from under the bar of the canvas, keeping the loop of yarn on the hook. 6. Slide the hook forward in the loop, hook the two legs of yarn, and pull them through the loop. Tighten to secure. 7. Repeat 2-6 until all the rug is covered with yarn. Normally, you would start on a long edge and put a row of yarn across, then go to the next row (rather than completing all of a color at one time).
