Meet the Maine Moose!
The real ones won’t fit in your living room – but this cute take on the unofficial mascot of Maine is welcome in every home!
Maine Moose - Rug Hooking Instructions was designed by author and teacher Susie Stephenson, of Edgecomb, Maine, just for Halcyon Yarn. Now you can hook (or punch) this fun design and bring a little Maine folk art into your decor. Available as a pattern and instructions so you can choose your own colors using strands of our classic Halcyon Yarn Rug Wool. Or make it just like you see it here with the convenient Maine Moose - Rug Hooking Kit. Suitable for advanced beginners.
Worked in the Halcyon Yarn Classic Rug Wool on a traditional Unbleached Linen Rug Backing 64", the finished piece measures approximately 12″x12″, making it a great size for a pillow cover or chair pad, or to hang on your wall. We recommend a larger hook, such as the ergonomic Hartman Hook, Ball Handle extra coarse 9 MM Rug Hook. If you’re a puncher rather than a hooker, you’ll just need to reverse the design or have the moose face the other direction.
