Annie’s Hook & Needle Club – Kit 13 – Weekend Little Lamb Sweater

Image

Weekend Little Lamb Sweater is the first kit in what is the start of year two with Annie’s Hook & Needle Club. I am hoping I find the second year as stimulating for my crocheting as year one was. So far I am really looking forward to receiving each kit and the kits have motivated me to take new journeys into my crocheting travels. I must admit that the kits themselves although not difficult, they have brought me to try projects that I have shied away from before.

For instance, this month’s kit is the a adorable hooded sweater for a six to twelve month old baby. I have crocheted sweater’s before, but I have never crocheted a sweater that required a zipper to be sewn into the back. In addition to sewing a zipper you will need to be familiar with the chain stitch (The Chain Stitch), single crochet (Single Crochet), double crochet (Double Crochet) and half double crochet (Half Double Crochet). This entire pattern is done in basic stitches and rated easy, making this a good project for someone who would like to try to crochet a small garment.

The kit came with three skeins of 100% polyester yarn, two pattern; one for knitting and one for crocheting and an 18 inch zipper. All the skeins are unmarked which will make it impossible for crocheting this project a second time using the same yarn. I will need to provide a K crochet hook, tapestry and sewing needle and matching sewing thread in order to complete the project.

I am fighting off the flu this week and have not crocheted as much as usually, so I will need to catch up a few other projects before I can begin working on this kit. To be honest, if it was not for my rule of only having three projects going at once, I would probably get out my

K hook and start crocheting on this cute sweater. I am anxious to see the end results. I am planning to have it finished before the next kit arrives in February.  Do  you all share my weakness for wanting to start more projects then you should?  There is so much out there I would love to crochet, and so little time to devote to the craft.

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.

  1. I didn’t even know you could buy those. Can’t wait to see pictures. Good luck.

  2. Annie’s Hook & Needle Club is a club that sends you a kit every 4 to 8 weeks. So far I have really enjoyed them. Sorry it took me so long to respond to your post I had the flu the first few months of the year and am just catching up my email. I enjoy getting comments and am usually quicker.
