Annie’s Hook and Needle Club – Kit 23 – Rib Stitch Ensemble


This months Annie’s Hook and Needle Club marks my 23rd kit that has arrived in the mail. The timing of this kit amazed me, for since the day before it arrived, I was contemplating whether or not I should look through some patterns for a new hat and scarf for the upcoming cold weather. Imagine my excitement upon opening this kit and seeing the pattern!

The Rib Stitch Ensemble is an intermediate skill level and it came with six patterns; two each for a hat, scarf and mitts. As usual, with one each, a set of instructions for crocheting and knitting. I of course will be doing the crocheting set in time for this winter.

In addition to the patterns, the kit came with two skeins of size 4 dark blue worsted weight yarn in unmarked labels. I will need to use my J and I crochet hook and a tapestry needle to complete the projects.

This kit will be perfect for an inexperienced crocheter needing a kit that would be a little challenging. Although it has the basic stitches of the chain stitch and the single crochet, it also has more advanced stitches such as the drop stitch, front post double crochet and single crochet decrease. Which makes this kit great for crafters that would like to increase their skill level and discover what their fingers are capable of.

I am not only looking forward to crocheting this kit, but to wearing the finished product through the winter.

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.
