PATTERN on LINEN – Beating Heart –


Mini Moon Glow on linen ready to be hooked.

In stock (can be backordered)


I’ve had wonderful feedback since I first hooked this personal pattern, and after many requests I’ve decided to share it. Please  note this is also available as a pdf pattern in a separate listing.

This is a smaller piece, perfect way to express yourself as a beginner or more advanced hooker. I chose to hook mine in warm tones: reds, pinks, oranges and golds. I’m sure it would be just beautiful hooked in another palette.

The heart is a universal symbol for love. We have the power put a lot of love out there, all around us. Its easy to love those that are nice to us but also very important to love those that do not know how to love. They need it the most as they probably lost the power of its effect or never knew the power of love.

Elle has become a symbol of mine as she represents the divine feminine is all of us, both males and females. More about Elle below.

This pattern on linen, measures 12 x 6 inches. The linen pattern has a generous 3.5 – 4 inch border all around to make it easier to insert in your hoop or your frame.

With the linen pattern, I will include a photo of the finished hooked rug to inspire you. I’ve hooked this piece several times now and have shared photos of all of them on Facebook and on Instagram (both under the name of Lonely Oak Alpacas). So please do check them out to further inspire you. Use the best yarns and wool cloth you have. Even add silk cloth if you have it. Choose colours that bring light and happiness to you.

Once your piece is completed, simply fold the border to the backside and stitch it in place. (Many videos are available online).

You can choose to hang your finished piece on the wall or turn it into a cushion. You might even want to make a frame for it.

Her name is Elle, she represents the Divine Feminine.


The following has been written by  EMILY TORRES and you can read the whole article HERE

Feminine energy is connected with fertility, but again, it doesn’t need to be reduced to human reproduction. Growth, whether it’s spiritual, physical, or emotional, celebrates a feminine energy in that we give life to something that was not there before.

The divine feminine is the spiritual concept that there exists a feminine counterpart to the patriarchal and masculine worship structures that have long dominated organized religions. The divine feminine extends well beyond one belief system, and instead can be used as a spiritual lens to balance our perspective. 

The feminine and the masculine are not singular and siloed energies—instead, they exist in balance. For example in ancient Chinese philosophy, Yin and Yang are a balance between receptive and productive, introspective and extrospective, feminine and masculine. But the two energies depend on one another—note how the symbol doesn’t cut harshly in a straight line down the middle. The black and white shapes swirl into and out of each other in harmony, changing, flowing, and making room for every possible version of balance.
