Latch hook rugs are made by using a special hook to pull yarn pieces through fabric or plastic mesh and knot them in place. Creating your own latch hook pattern requires the use of graph paper to plan out which colours are knotted throughout the grid mesh. Make your own latch hook patterns online using generator software that will allow you to choose colours, images and yarn type.
Choose an online service to create your pattern (see Resources for pattern generator options).
Upload a JPG image to the service by clicking "Browse" and choosing your image. Click on "Send File."
Change the preferences to choose your yarn type, width and height of your project.
Click on "Print/Save" to save your pattern.
