Hook & Needle Club Kit 1- Ruffled Scarf

I should have waited, I kept telling my self to wait and just finish the Afghan I was working on. After all, I do need to finish it by next week so I can start my Crochet Master adventure. I was good for a while after my first kit from Annie’s Hook & Needle club arrived, but I never should have opened it, alas I was so excited!!! I do not really want to admit this but the truth be known I did not make it to the second day.

Out came the yarn and the next thing I knew I was crocheting the Ruffled Scarf. I hope I am not the only one that gets into that state of excitement when I get a crochet hook in my hands and am staring down at that new pattern!!! So at least I won’t feel so guilty. Please write and help me ease my conscience. In short, I took a break from my Afghan that I have been so diligently working on and I am now making one of the scarves. However, I promised myself I would not make the second one until my Afghan was completed.

When I picked up the pattern to glance over (as I always like to read over a pattern before I work one) I noticed it was an easy pattern to read. Very clear and well written. I knew instantly this would be a relaxing project.

Only disappointment was that the yarn said “Annie’s Hook & Needle Club”. No yarn brand or name. I will not be able to duplicate this project without a little research, for all that was said in the pattern was to use soft white fine Yarn (2).

The rest of the kit was everything they promised. Enough yarn and patterns to complete two project. If you have a variety of hooks on hand and needles to sew in those pesky ends, you will be more than ready to start the day the new kit arrives.

The scarf was made of the chain stitch (The Chain Stitch), slip stitch(Slip Stitch), single crochet (Single Crochet) and double crochet (Double Crochet). This is actually a great pattern for a beginning crocheter; or someone like me who just wants a break from more difficult projects. I enjoyed doing this pattern so much I made two. One for me and one for my daughter in law; each scarf was completed in under five hours each. I am now anxiously awaiting to send it to her.

Until next time; keep those hooks flying.

About crochetwithpassion

I have been certified through the Craft Yarn Council both in teaching and Instructor. I also have been teaching people to crochet for over fifteen years. This is what I will be doing through this blog. In the Crochet Master Class there are 18 projects. Some of the projects will be familiar to me such as Hairpin Lace; Tunisian Crochet; Filet Crochet; Double Ended Crochet; painted Crochet; Aran Crochet and Irish Crochet. However there are several in the book that are new and have peaked my interest and that includes the following: Woven Crochet; Tapestry Crochet; Entrelac Crochet; Fashion Crochet; Tassels; Bullion Stitch; Overlay Crochet; Bead Crochet; Bruges Crochet; Free-form crochet and Wire Crochet. Since Crocheting is a time consuming craft I will only be posting once a week. If you are like me and love to crochet but would really like to challenge yourself to go beyond what you are now doing, come along with me and move to the next level. Although the actual patterns will not be posted (copyright law) I will take you through each project and go through the process of each one. This is not a blog about free crochet patterns or selling crochet tools. What I would like to do is take you with me on the journey through this book as I learn and crochet each of 18 projects. I will attempt to crochet each project in the book, and in the process recording in detail my progress and the problems I encounter along the way and the process I went through to accomplish each project. I am hoping that you will not only learn from my experience but that it will inspire you to push yourself to the next phase in your crocheting skills. Until next time; keep those hooks flying.

    How do you do the ‘Edging’. The instructions are not clear to me. Thanks.

  2. I can not explain the pattern without writing the copy written pattern on here. But this is the phone number to pattern services at Annies 260-589-4000. They would be really glad to help over the phone. You just need to have your phone number and the pattern number with you when you call. Or you could send me your email and I can email you an explanation. My email is crochetwithpassion@gmail.com. I hope this helps.
