2.The must have Materials of latch hook projects

A good latch hook projects should include a canvas grid, a pattern and pre-cut yarn segments.

Latch hook projects can be bought or prepared by crafter himself.

If a latch hook kit is needed to prepare at home, Canvas and yarn need to be purchased and then, cut yarn segments and make a pattern by crafter himself.

But if the crafter is a beginner or a kid, better to buy one. There are pre-printed latch hook canvas kits in craft stores.

But Lots of latch hook projects do not include latch hook tools and need to be bought separately.

  • Canvas 

Canvas grid is the base of the latch hook design. In a purchased readymade latch hook kit, there will be a pre-printed design on the canvas that shows exactly where to put which color, or else the crafter can make own design by using a canvas.

As mentioned above, this pattern comes with the canvas grid in a latch hook kit. For customized patterns, we can draw patterns and colour as per requirement. And also pattern templates can be downloaded from the internet as well.


  • Latch Hook Needle

Most important tool for latch hooking. There is a hook on the end with a tiny hinged piece under it. This hinged piece is opened and closed when the tool is moved in and out of the canvas grid. This secures the yarn segments by slipping out of the hook. It is a reusable tool and one time purchase, always choose a quality one for the projects.

    • Sew Needle 

    Sew Needle is used for finishing up the ends of canvas grid. Once the latch hook is done, it should be sawed with something else like a pillow or by folding ends.

      • Marker

      How to latch hook?

      Step 1

      Draw a border of 1 ½ inches on all four sides of the canvas grid by using a marker. Some kits have already marked this border. This border prevents fraying and leaves to fit the latch hook art to something else, like cloth or pillow. 

      Step 2

      Start with the second to bottom row of the grid. Always make sure to work to the end of the lower row before moving to the upper row.

      Step 3

      Take the latch hook tool and put yarn underneath it. Then loop the yarn segment around the hook.
