Caron Latch Hook Rug Kits

Guest Author - Christine Dux

Caron Latch Hook Rug Kits include a color coded canvas, color key and chart for using the yarn, instructions and enough pre-cut acrylic yarn to finish the rug.

Instructions include diagrams showing how to use your latch hook tool and directions for latch hooking and finishing your rug. Finishing instructions include directions for binding your rug, and how to finish your rug into a wall hanging or pillow.

Sizes range from 8 inches X 8 inches to 34 inches X 50 inches (20.3 centimeters X 20.3 centimeters to 86.4 centimeters X 127 centimeters).
There are also kits for 18 inch (45.7 centimeter) and 24 inch (61 centimeter) diameter rugs.

Caron currently offers five different types of kits: Shaggy, Caron Classics, Krafty Kids, Natura and WonderArt.

Caring for your rug:
Latch hook rugs are not machine washable. Caron Latch Hook Rugs can be dry cleaned or hand washed using a mild detergent. Lay flat to dry.

Youíll need to purchase your own rug hook and binding.

Iíve purchased Caron Latch Hook Rug Kits at my local discount and craft stores. I like rug kits because they come with a pattern and all the pre-cut yarn you need to finish the project. They also make great gifts for children and are a good way to get started in the craft of latch hooking. Canít find what youíre looking for locally? As of the date of this article, amazon.com currently lists 126 different rug kits from Caron.

More information about Latch Hooking can be found in the Hooking and Prodding category or by following the links below. Articles include instructions for cutting yarn, hand sewing a hem, using iron-on binding, joining canvas, fixing mistakes and tips for preventing canvas from unraveling.
Think 70ís! Check out the Shaggy Rug Kits, made with longer length yarn.

Caron Krafty Kids Rug Kits - 8 inch X 8 inch (20.3 centimeters X 20.3 centimeters) kits have a larger weave on canvas and simple instructions. These are great kits for getting children started in latch hooking.
