The rooster and also review the materials used for completing this project - and here we are locker hooking at the outer rows around your design, and this will create a nice frame, bring look for the outer rows. According to your pattern, you're going to lock or hook the rows of pumpkin and then lock with the inner rows, like I'm doing here with pop one, the Capano strips now, Capano is actually woven fabric, that's cut on the bias and adds wonderful texture because it frays, As you use it, you're going to want to pull up the inner rows a little lower than the outer row so quarter-inch on the inside and about 3/8 of an inch on the outside for the pumpkin color.
And just keep that in mind. As you work as you're working on this rooster design, you can want to lock or hook each design element separately. And here I wanted to show you how you can actually travel, you're, locking medium and your fabric, strips as you're working, different design elements, and you can see that I'm moving the locker hook through this edging on the body of the rooster.
And I am continuing to push through I'm going to travel the locking medium as we move through this design element, and this just makes it a little easier and a little tidier to clean up later. Okay, there we go, I'm grabbing a fabric, stick strip on the back side and pulling it up right there and we're going to pull the locking medium through and we've traveled it through that whole row. There and you'll have different opportunities to do that. As you work.
This design there we go, as I mentioned before, for this Phoenix rooster you're going to want to log with each design element separately and just take your time to get each part done right, and here I'm doing a using an olive color in a hat dyed. Cotton fabric and we're just doing a traditional Locker hooky, it's a little bit on the slant, but I'm just making sure that the loops are pulled up within the outline and, as you can see, a lot of this is already locker hooked here. We're just finishing up this particular area and there's no particular sort of order.
You can work on the body first up. I do recommend you work out. The outer frame outer rows first and then work on each separate design element. I decided to use the rough frame technique I created for the tail design. I just really wanted a lot of texture, and here I'm going to show you how we do a rough frame, so you basically want to pad a framed in area and then stitch it to cover it up later, and you want to use a heavy acrylic blend yarn and stitch on within the locker hooked frame and you're going to take big stitches over the top and then tiny stitches on the back side.
