Annie’s Hook and Needle Club ~ Kit 26 ~ Cuddle~Up Review

2015-01-27 13.04.55

The new year brought with it my first Annie’s Hook and Needle Club kit in 2015.  By now you know  was excited and could not wait to open and start crocheting.   It was an adorable car seat blanket for the little ones in your life.

So I set aside the other two kits I was working on and aggressively started crocheting the cute little afghan.  It is one of those projects that only requires your concentration in the beginning.  Once you completed the first square, you then progressed by repeating the process eleven more times.

The afghan itself was a 16 inch wide and 22 inches long piece constructed of twelve squares that are to be sewn together.  As with all the kits, there were instructions for knitting and crocheting.

The kit came with five unmarked skeins of light weight (3) in five different colors. The colorful small afghan will be in yellow, light green, blue, pink and white.  The colored yarn was for the squares and the white s used for the edging.

The aftercare for the afghan will be easy enough, as it is machine washable, on a cool gentle cycle and tumble dry with a gentle setting.  It is suggested that you do not use bleach or try to iron it.

The stitches in the pattern are all basic stitches of the chain stitch (The Chain Stitch), single crochet (The Single Crochet) and double crochet (The Double Crochet).  It is an easy level pattern that is great for anyone who would like some experience with sewing squares together.

The pattern will also give you a working knowledge of working in rounds.  So all and all this pattern is a great crochet journey for a new crocheter who would like a slight challenge.   Included here is a link that might helpful. (How to make a Crochet Circle Flat)

The pattern was well written and very easy to follow.  All and all this was a wonderful journey in my crocheting journey.  But then again afghans are my favorite items to crochet.  I have decided to rate this pattern a 9, losing one point for the yarn coming in unmarked skeins.  This seem to be a normal occurrence with the club, or just possibly policy.

Am slowly crocheting my way to catching up in my crocheting.  Would love to hear what are your favorites items to crochet.

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.
