This is a photo of the original rug, hooked circa 1900.
A large heart in the center, surrounded by smaller hearts with the lettering St. Valentine below. This is an easy pattern to hook if you have tackled letters before! If not, it's a good one to learn how to hook letters. The letter "V" measures 4.75 inches tall. The hearts measure 6 inches, 10 inches and the center heart is 16 inches tall.
