Annie’s Hook & Needle Club ~ Kit 29 ~ Easy Does It! Dishcloths

2015-04-21-04-31

Monday of this week marked the end of my spring semester “Beginning Crochet Class,” freeing up two months until my next series of classes. On the last day of class I usually suggest to the students that if they are interested in learning a variety of new stitches, or even reinforce the ones that they learned, that they should buy a pattern book of dishcloths.

Dishcloth patterns are great for new crocheter’s. They are a great way to get some experience with a lot of different stitches in small quick projects. In addition to crocheting stitches, it is a great way to help you improve your pattern reading ability with projects that are not overwhelming or time consuming. An average dishcloth can be completed in one afternoon for an experienced crocheter.

I bet you are asking yourself, “why am I bringing all of this up when she is supposed to be talking about her kit from Annie’s?” The amazing thing is a few days after my class ended I walked out to my mailbox and discovered that Annie’s sent me the kit called “Easy Does It! Dishcloths”. This kit came with either three patterns for crocheted or knitted dishcloths. I smiled when I opened the kit because of the timing.

The kit also came with three Sugar N Cream cotton yarn, one each in red, white and blue skeins. I will need to use an H hook and tapestry needle from my own tools to complete the kit.

I enjoy crocheting dishcloths when I am looking for a small, quick project. They are fun and colorful way to add a decorative touch to any kitchen. When I have enough in my own kitchen, l will crochet some and place in my gift box to have on hand for gifts to my family and friends. I am sure this kit will be done by the end of the week and be ready to store in my box until they are needed.

What are some projects you would suggest for a new crocheter to gain some experience along their journey in developing skills in crocheting? Would love to hear some ideas that I could share with my students.

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.
