Annie’s Hook and Needle Club – Kit 22 – Poinsettia Place Mats.


In the mail this week I received my first Christmas project. Annie’s Hook and Needle Club has sent me my 22nd kit; poinsettia Place Mats. A nice festive touch to add to the dinner table around the Holidays.

The kit came with enough yarn to make two place mats. This included two skeins of fine sport red, green and yellow cotton yarn, and two skeins of sport weight white yarn. There is also 2 patterns; one for crocheting and one for knitting. To complete the kit I will need to provide an F size crochet hook and a tapestry needle.

The patterns are marked intermediate, which will be a nice challenge for our less experience crocheters. In addition to the basic stitches of the chain stitching, single crochet and double crochet, you will need to know how to crochet the bobble stitch using treble stitches.

I have gotten behind in working my kits and have set the next week aside for nothing else. Hopefully I will have the review posted by next weekend on the four I have not finished.

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.
