| Locker hooking is an "old rug hooking technique" that came about in the early 1900's. The locker hook looks like a 6-1/2" long crochet hook with a large needle 'eye' at the other end. With a locker hook, locking thread (thick string or yarn), latch hook rug canvas, and fabric strips (or yarn, sheep & llama wool, and other materials), you can make beautiful and long lasting rugs, wall hangings, pot holders, hot pads, mug rugs, placemats, blankets, jackets, vests, purses and more! It is very easy, quick, inexpensive, and portable! Great for traveling! It is easy on the hands and eyes, and very therapeutic and relaxing! Anyone can do it!
