Annie’s Hook & Needle Club – Kit 19 – Classic Tote Bag


The second and newest kit I am working on is actually a useful one. It is unusual for me to post about the kit when I am half way through working on the project. So far I am really enjoying this one. It is a Classic Tote Bag, I was wanting a tote bag to carry my Bible, back and forth and to and from church. I was looking through patterns for tote bags trying to make up mind which one to crochet when I received this one in the mail. It solved my problem.

The kit came with two unmarked skeins of yarn, one off white and the second green-both in medium worsted weight yarn. I just need to use an F crochet hook from my personal tools and a tapestry needle to complete the Classic tote bag.

The kit also came with two patterns, one for crochet and one for knit. I will be working the crochet version from the kit. There is only one specialty stitch and that is the single crochet decrease making the skill level for this pattern marked easy. This would be a really good pattern for someone who knows their stitches and would like to try something a little harder.

My grand daughter saw me crocheting my tote bag and asked me what I was doing and when I explained I was making a tote bag for church, she promptly asked me if I could make her one. So who knows? I might be making a couple of these before it is done.


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.
