How-To Locker Hook

Now, you have all the materials ready, let’s hook and lock the loops!!!! I illustrate it with one of the coasters I made for the giveaway.
I am currently working on a bigger project for my home, should be able to complete just in-time for the Chinese New Year which falls on the same day as Valentine’s day this year, yes, double celebration on 14 Feb 2010!!!!

As I mentioned in my basic preparation post, my method is a little different since I am using my own locking chopstick. Pro – this is suitable for beginners and for those who can’t find a locker hook, Con – slower in process. If you are able to find a locker hook, Theresa is more than happy to share with you how to locker hook with the hook. Please find the video at the end of this post that she demonstrates it with a trivet making. A big thank you to Theresa, who allows me to embed her video in Craft Passion.

  3. Love the chopstick. Made mine, and works great for keeping my loops the same height. Working on a purse!

  4. I would like to make a rug with Chunky Thick yarn (weight category of 6). Would you have any idea how I can figure out how much yarn I would need?

  5. This is so cute, can’t wait to give it a try. Just found your site today-so many great projects and clear tutorials, thanks for all your effort, really well done!

  6. WOW!! What fun! This is a totally Great tutorial. Wonderful, well explained instructions. I came home with needle and canvas yesterday and didn’t have a clue how to start. Now I will start cutting my material and get to work making a small clutch bag. Thanks for this freebee!

  7. Question…would muslin material be usable for the background?

    • I presumed your “background” means the canvas I use to locker hook. I haven’t tried that yet but I remember I helped my late great-grandmother to make a shaggy rag rug when I was very small, we hooked and tied the fabric strips onto material similar to muslin, so….. I would say it could be feasible but you need to be gentle and don’t pull too hard to torn the thin muslin.
