HIGGLY PIGGLY HOOKING…
Julia asked me about the “higgly piggly” hooking that I mentioned on yesterday’s post. It is the section with the greens and yellows right under the bird feet.
I hooked the above “bird” section a bit differently…hooking more in lines because of the rounded shape of the motif…but below is a picture of the “real” higgly piggly hooking. (From the “little gardener” rug.) You can see the loops going in all directions! (I left some little spaces and added the red in After the yellow and green was finished.)
Holding the two strips close together, you bring them up and pull them through together…hooking in different directions as you go along.
If one of the 2 strips ends up behind the other, you can just nudge the loop out with your hook and keep on going.
My normal hooking below. I was taught to hook “neatly”…so I either hook in curving lines or straight lines, with neater loops going the same way for the most part. So, “higgly” was a “strange” technique for me…but I really like it for certain situations. 🙂
Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂
