My fourteenth kit from Annie’s Hook & Needle Club was a nice enjoyable project to crochet. I am coming off my second round with the flu since the new year and was in need of a simple and fun project. The Pocket Scarf was an easy pattern to get me back into crocheting.
The kit came with two patterns, one for crocheting and one for knitting. If you have been following my blog you know I only work the crocheting patterns. The yarn is a variegated yarn of fine sport weight (2) and is made of 100% Acrylic. The yarn labels are in an unmarked brand, and although I had received several compliments on the yarn I”m sad to say, there is no possibility of obtaining anymore skeins. If you have the knowledge of the chain stitch (The Chain Stitch) and the double crochet (Double Crochet) you should easily complete this scarf in one or two afternoons. The skill level was easy and all I needed of for tools was my N hook.
One of the reasons that this pattern was so enjoyable is that the Pocket Scarf instructions were very readable and easy to follow. I am rating this kit a 9, losing the one point for the yarn being unmarked. I am already fighting the impulse to start a second scarf for my store because I have not finished the January kit as of yet (I will have finished by next week). I know I will be crocheting this pattern again.
When I wore the scarf on Sunday, I received many comments on the style and colors, but the best comment I received was from my five year old grandson. He slipped his hand into the pocket and asked if i had pockets in my scarf. When I told him yes, he looked up and said “That is so cool.” It made my whole day.
For those of you who are in the club with me, I would love to hear about your experience with kits.
Until next week, keep those hooks flying.
