Locker Hooking is a fast, easy craft for all ages. The technique involves drawing yarn, roving, wool top or fabric strips through a rug canvas with the Locker Hook which has a hook at one end and an eye on the other end. An excellent way to use leftover yarn, fibers or quilters use leftover strips of cloth. Also known as Anchored Loop rug hooking. You can make any size item from hot pads to rugs, pillows, wall hangings, vests or handbags.
