Wool Roving Chair Pads

Latch Hook Wool Roving Chair Pad class
Fiber Guild Spring Retreat
May 2017
(click collage to enlarge)
The afternoon class at the annual Fiber Guild Spring Retreat was a wool roving chair pad. The woman who taught the class has made numerous pads and brought them to Guild meetings for show and tell. We finally convinced her to teach a class.

The base of the pad is latch-hook canvas, and the pad is constructed with a crochet hook and wool roving. Working the roving and the crochet hook through the doubled edge was tricky and somewhat difficult. After the edge was covered with roving, the process went much faster for everyone.

I got about three rows finished on my pad. More to come as it progresses, but it may be awhile so don't hold your breath.

  2. I'll bet that was fun! I was looking at my "2017 Possibilities and Dreams" and saw/remembered that learning rug hooking was on my list of what I would like to learn...but I think I need to hold off on that (not enough time to do everything I am already in the midst of - lol).

  6. That looks like a challenge. Please show us the finished product. Where do you get your wool roving from? Do you have sheep farming near where you live?

  7. You do seem to be very versatile with the crafts you participate in. Something passed down from your mother, no doubt.

    I feel sure you had a lot of fun at this workshop and hope you are pleased with the outcome.
