I came across the Three hares motif and was quite intrigued by it. It tends to show up in a wide assortment of religions. There are various meanings one of which its just a cool puzzle. There are three hares and only three ears yet no matter how you turn it they all appear to have two ears. Way cool and what a neat idea for a rug.
Guess what I? I did it and here it is!
Here is a close up of the rabbits.
I love doing dots in the back ground. it helps break up the space and add color.
I have been crocheting my edges for awhile I really like the look and it is fast and easy. I used some hand dyed wool that varies in light gold to dark to green. I think it pulls together the colors in the rug.
