Annie Hook & Needle Club – Kit 6 – Woven Ribbon Runner

Image

My sixth kit came via mail truck yesterday afternoon. It is a charming “Woven Ribbon Runner”. It is crocheted or knitted in the woven pattern similar to the Tartan Afghan I made a few months ago. This is great because it will give me some more hands on practice with this technique while at the same time allowing me to experience the woven part. Only this time I will be using ribbon instead of yarn.

The kit came with two skeins of medium weight (4) “Premier Dream Yarn” color “Camelback” and super bulky weight (6) ribbon yarn. There is no skill level marked on the pattern but looking it over I would say it is an easy one. The Table Runner is composed of single crochet (Single Crochet), treble crochet (Triple/Treble Crochet) and the reverse single crochet (Reverse Single Crochet). I have always loved the reverse single crochet for an edging. It also came with an insert with the corrections to some of the rows in the original pattern.

If you turn to the back of the pattern leaflet you will discover an interesting article on “Making Holes in Crochet and Knit”. I never really considered the uses of holes in crocheting until I read this. I thought that was a nice added touch.

The finished size of the Table Runner will be 35″ x 13 1/2″ which will be the perfect size for a hall table I have that has scramming for a crochet accent.

Until next week, 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.
