Annie’s Hook & Needle Club – Pocket Scarf Review

Image

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.

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.

    I agree with your son. A scarf with pockets is in fact very cool! Nice colors too!

  2. I agree, a child’s perspective always makes me look at things I might would otherwise overlook.
