Latch hooking is one of the rare fiber arts that combines ease and flexibility. This yarn craft takes just minutes to learn, and the only materials required are a latch hook, yarn, and latch canvas. Despite its simplicity, the medium offers endless possibilities from home decoration to provocative artwork. Until now, latch hooking has become stuck in deep shag kitsch. But in Latch-hooking Rugs , artist and educator Lynda Spiro takes the craft beyond its acrylic past. Thanks to Spiro's new book, there is no need to be limited by the dated designs found in most commercial latch hook kits.

Latch-hooking Rugs teaches the basic techniques of the craft through supportive step-by-step directions, color illustrations, and vibrant photographs. The handbook also contains instructions for more than thirty different rug and wall-hanging projects, from bold stripes and checks to floral motifs to three-dimensional effects, all presented in colorways that complement today's decor. For latch-hookers who wish to create their own unique works, Spiro includes a chapter on design and inspiration. She even offers instruction on ways to use leftover yarn.

With more than 100 color illustrations and dozens of contemporary designs, Latch-hooking Rugs revives the meditative craft of latch hooking for today's crafter.
