Annie’s Hook & Needle Club – Uptown Beret & Fingerless Mitts


This week brought with it my next kit from Annie’s Hook & Needle Club. I am a little excited about this one. It is a Beret and Fingerless Mitt Pattern. I am thinking they will be perfect for riding my bicycle in the fall.

The kit came with two skeins of Premier Berry Burst Yarn from the Deborah Norville Collection, and four patterns two in crocheting,and two in knitted. After looking at the Premier Yarn web sight ( I can say without trepidation that this kit came with a yarn I can repurchase if I like.

The pattern is worked using a H and N hook and it is marked easy. The pattern is done is rounds, so it will be good practice for a beginner who has not crocheted a lot of projects in rounds. The pattern consists of single crochet(Single Crochet ), the rib stitch (Single Crochet Rib Stitch) and single crochet decreases (Single Crochet Decrease. After reading through it I am thinking it will work up quickly.

This kit makes me want to hurry up and finish my Solomon’s Knot scarf so I can get started on this one. I love projects I cannot wait to start.

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.
