Annie’s Hook and Needle Club – Kit 25 – Little Princess Baby Sweater

2014-12-19-08-47

 

I actually received my last kit for 2014 on December 19. I am just a little behind in my posting is all. I am fast at catching up though. This kit was exciting to receive because it was the fourth kit I had gotten that comes from those posted in the project gallery on the web sight. (http://www.hookandneedleclub.com/project_gallery.php ) It is always fun for me to receive one of the kits that are advertised by Annie’s.

The December kit was a Little Princess Baby Sweater. Something that will be nice to put up for a future baby shower gift. The kit came with two skeins of Raspberry pink yarn, (unmarked as usually), two patterns one for crocheting and one for knitting and a 5/8 inch button. All I will need from my own tools to crochet the kit is an H and 7 size hook and a sewing needle with matching yarn.

My kit was minus the button and when I called Annie’s Hook and Needle Club they were so nice as to mail me an entirely new kit. I felt really bad about them mailing the whole kit over a button, but they said that was their policy. They really stand behind their kits, I have to give them credit for good customer service and for insuring customer satisfaction .

The skill level for the sweater is marked easy which can be a great experience for a crocheter who would like to expand their skills into baby clothes. The kit only requires a working knowledge of the chain stitch (The Chain Stitch) and single crochet (The Single Crochet ) with two specialty stitches of the single crochet decrease (Single Crochet Decrease) and extended single crochet (extended single crochet).

As with any project, but particularly a clothing item, make sure your gauge is correct before you proceed with the pattern. If the gauge is off just a little, it can really affect the outcome concerning the size of the pattern.

I always enjoy crocheting baby items and I am sure this one will not disappoint.

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.
