Time to try a new craft? Check out these Cool Latch Hook Kits

Latch Hook Kits have never really had a reputation for very tasteful designs. To be honest, unless you are into images of tigers, wolves or kittens, the choices tend to be a little slim.

But don’t discount this craft because it has been ‘out of favour’ for the last few decades. I think that latch hook is going to become the ‘next big thing’ in craft. I predict it won’t be long before we see latch hook making a come back with a more modern twist.

I dabbled with latch hook when I made this Shaggy Latch Hook Cushion Cover. It was super fun to make and looks so cool.

It’s a craft that doesn’t require a great deal of technical skill, which makes it perfect for crafters of any level. It also makes the ideal project to do while watching Netflix!

Sure it can be a little time consuming, but since most of us have quite a lot of time on our hands right now, I say it’s really a great time to get into Latch Hooking!

I’ve scoured the intewebs for Latch Hook Kits that are contemporary, modern, or have cool vintage designs. Trust me, there’s a lot of ugly designs out there, so finding something ‘fresh’ was quite the challenge.

If you want a craft project that is ready to go, I’d suggest opting for a Latch Hook Kit that contains everything you need to get started. Most include a latch hook canvas, hook, pre-cut yarn and pattern design with instructions. Some canvases even come pre-edged or pre-sewn into cushion covers.

Because latch Hook Kits can be a bit pricey, another great alternative is creating a design yourself, or following a purchased pattern. There are some great downloadable pattern designs that can be followed to make a rug or wall hanging with your own craft supplies.

Designs can be drawn directly onto the canvas or use a chart with the grid lines as a guide.

Purchasing pre-cut yarn can save time, but if you don’t have access or budget to purchase pre-cut yarn, any sturdy yarn can be used. You’ll just need to make a template and start cutting. I’ve linked to a handy yarn cutting template in my roundup.

If you’re itching to dabble with a new craft, I think latch hook may just be what you are looking for!
