Hook a Monochromatic Rug

Donna Hrkman

The monochromatic hooked rugs in this book are works of art. While it might sound simple to hook with only a handful of different wools, it most definitely is not. In fact, it is a challenge. Author Donna Hrkman’s realistic monochromatic rugs are spectacular examples of what an artist can do with a limited color palette. They are enhanced by her masterful use of shades, tints, tones, and values. Limited-colored rugs these days, thanks largely to Donna and her exquisite eye, are so much more than sepia and shades of brown. Donna tackles this challenging genre of rug hooking and explains her methods and techniques in this eye-opening book.

Donna Hrkman has been an artist for as long as she can remember. Rug hooking gave her the joy of creating unique artwork that allows her to express her ideas and creative thinking. She is a popular teacher, holding workshops across the country to share what she knows. She loves the challenge of creating lasting images in pulled loops and making rugs that have deep meaning. Donna has written two other books and has written frequently for Rug Hooking magazine. Her rugs have won awards and have been published in books and publications.
