Let’s take a look at the beautiful punch needle patterns from Kelly Kanyok at Orphanedwool an Etsy shop.
Kelly’s Etsy shop has patterns for punch needle embroidery which can also work as patterns for rug hooking as well. If you are new to these hobbies and want to learn more, take a look at this post: The Difference Between Punch Needle Embroidery and Rug Punching from the Experts. Rug hooking being different than rug punching is also mentioned in the article.
I am very much a beginner in punch needle as well, but to my eye Kelly’s patterns look like they are for more advanced stitchers. Once a stitcher gets there’s bearings however, punch needle looks like a quick fun hobby! And to make it easier Kelly has several options to choose from at her shop:
- Paper pattern
- Cloth drawn pattern
- Paper pattern and threads
- Cloth pattern and threads
