Annie’s Hook & Needle Club – Kit 14 – Pocket Scarf

Image

February brought my fourteenth kit from Annie’s Hook & Needle Club. I can’t believe my membership is moving well into my second year of kits. This is the first time that I was only half way through one kit when the other one arrived. As you may recall, January was a slow month of crocheting for me. I will make sure this is the one and only time this happens. The February kit is a quick one, and should make up in a day or two.

The Pocket Scarf is a perfect kit for February chilly winter winds. The yarn is a variegated yarn of fine sport weight (2) and is made of 100% Acrylic. The yarn labels are in a unmarked brand, which I am beginning to think is a common occurrence with the kits. What this means is if I really like the yarn I will be unable to purchase any more because of matching difficulties This is my number one complaint with the club. In some instances if I really like something, I enjoy duplicating additional ones for my friends. Even though I do have the pattern, I will not be able to find the same yarn.

The kit is marked easy and is composed of the chain stitch (The Chain Stitch), single crochet (Single Crochet)and the double crochet

(Double Crochet). Making this a perfect pattern for a beginner crocheter. To complete the scarf you will also need an N hook and a tapestry needle.

I was wanting to add some scarves to my wardrobe so I am excited to have received some scarf patterns in the club. I am looking forward to not only crocheting my new Pocket Scarf but wearing it hopefully in time for Valentine’s day.

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.
