Annie’s Hook and Needle Club ~ Kit 27 ~ Market Tote


This months mail brought a kit from Annie’s Hook and Needle Club and its something that can be really useful.  It was a Market Tote, which is something that always comes in handy at my house.  This will however be the first one I have used one  that will be crocheted and am looking forward to seeing how it will handle using it in the stores.

The kit came with two skeins of (2) fine green variegated yarn and a pattern for knitting and crocheting.  I will be once again working the crocheting pattern.  I will need to supply an I hook, tapestry needle and 8 stitch markers.

The tote is worked using a filet double crochet stitch (Filet – Open Mesh Spaces) which is always enjoyable and  is an easy pattern to work.  If you decide to crochet this Market tote you will also need to have a working knowledge of the chain stitch plus, there was an added challenge of the Filet double crochet decrease. This  is for those of you who would like to gain some experience with simple shaping.

The yarn is 100% cotton, this means simple measures can be taken for the care of the tote.  The tote can be cleaned in a cool gentle wash and a gentle low heat tumble dry.  Remember not to use bleach or to iron.

In addition to the tote there is enough yarn for a Water Bottle Cover.  No matter where I go I have water with me.  I am looking forward to sporting this around snuggly tucked in this filet cover.

i am planning on having this done this week and am looking forward to sharing the experience with you next week.

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.

    Can you tell me how many ounces of yarn are included in this kit. I have the instructions from the kit but it doesn’t say how much yarn is needed. I gave away my completed project but was thinking about making another one. Thanks

  4. The kit came with 700 yards of fine sports weight yarn.
