Annie’s Hook & Needle Club: Kit 8 – A Basket of Sunflower Coasters


The new kit from Annie’s Hook & Needle Club arrived over the weekend and my first thoughts was “how cute”. The pattern is for four sunflower coasters with a crochet basket to contain them.  I have always loved sunflowers.

The pattern is marked easy and consisted of chain stitches (The Chain Stitch), slip stitches (Slip Stitch), single crochet(Single Crochet) and double crochet (Double Crochet). The one challenging stitch is the treble crochet decrease. (Triple Crochet Decrease)

The yarn is once again unmarked and I am beginning to think most of the kits will be this way. Time will tell. The kit came with 3 skeins of worsted weight yarn in the colors of brown, green and yellow. The last thing included in the kit was a 6-inch metal ring which will be crocheted into the basket.

Really looking forward to starting this project. I have always enjoyed crocheting flowers. This will be my first time crocheting with a ring. It should be an interesting learning experience.

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 I get this pattern so cute I love sunflowers

  4. In January I joined Annie’s Hook & Needle Club. I have recieved nine kits from them and have posted each one on my blog with a review. I have them all listed under the “Explore” page if you would like to review them. I also added the link to tell you all the information. I joined to have some small projects to do inbetween my larger ones and to encourage me to try some projects I would not have otherwise tried. So far I have enjoyed being a member of the club.
