Seeing the awesome-ness of this hoop has actually made me go out and buy the Hunger Games book. I figure anything that can inspire that has got to be worth a read!

Well, shit! I'm so happy to have inspired you to read the books, I'm sure you'll love them  Grin

Thanks to everyone who has commented! I'm thinking about doing a pattern for this but...I just don't know where to start with all the overlapping and such haha

You mapped it out beautifully. It's actually made me a little bit more excited to see how they plan the arena in the movie and if looks as lush colour wise.

This is so gorgeous! I love the series and now I want to get into sawpping! Do you have any tips if I might want to recreate this hoop?

yarnynerd, my first tip is to keep some masking tape on your fingertips cause all those knots hurt! Use a high quality (dense) fabric like linen, it's totally worth the extra cost. And anything with a lesser thread count won't hold up.

I'm definitely going to do a pattern/tute when I get the time. I'm pretty sure I re-invented a couple of the fishbone type stitches though, and I don't know if I can explain them well.

Please, please, please send me the pattern when you finish it! I loved the books and I love your representation of the arena. It's beautiful.
