Mariposa Butterfly Latch Hook Kit

Butterflies are a popular theme for latch hooking and it's easy to see why! The colors are bright and the designs are interesting to latch. The finished size of the Mariposa Butterfly is 12" x 12".

Caron latch hook kits include color-coded canvas, pre-cut rug yarn, complete charts, and illustrated instructions. Add a latch hook tool and you'll be ready to start latch hooking!

Before starting your latch hook project, it's suggested that you cover the edges of the canvas with masking tape to prevent the edges from fraying or snagging.

The Happy Orcas Latch Hook Kit is a latch hook rug design that appeals to all ages. No need to worry if you're a beginner, Caron latch hook kits include instructions on how to use your latch hook tool, including step-by-step instructions with diagrams. Finished size of the Happy Orcas latch rug is 15" x 20".

Each kit includes a complete color chart, showing the appropriate color yarn to use for each square. In addition, the latch hook canvas is color-coded to match the yarn colors used in the rug design. This makes it easy to see when you're close to changing to a new yarn color.

The Happy Snowman Christmas Latch Hook Kit is a fun latch hooking kit for the holidays! Latch hooking is a fun craft activity to share with others. Gather friends & family for a latch hooking party!

There are a variety of options for finishing your latch hook rug project. You can create a fluffy pillow, decorative rug, or wall hanging. The first step to finishing is to trim the canvas to a 1-inch border around the hooked area.

For rugs and wall hangings, latch hook rug binding is recommended for a more finished look. For a pillow, you'll need a coordinating fabric for the backing and a pillow form.

When it's time to clean your latch hook rug, do not machine wash. Hand washing in cool water with mild detergent is one alternative. Dry cleaning is recommended by the manufacturer.
