Annie’s Hook & Needle Club – Kit 31- Fancy Floral Hot Pads


The Fancy Floral Hot pad project was my June club kit, so I am a little bit behind in my posting. I was really excited about receiving this kit as my daughter had told me she needed some hot pads for her kitchen a while back in passing. My daughter loves baking and is always looking for any tool that might make it easier for her. When I opened my mail box and discovered this kit I was eager to not only start them, but to finish them quickly. So do not let my tardiness in writing about the kit reflect on the complexities of the pads or my fear of attacking it, but rather in the busyness of summer.

The kit came with enough yarn to complete three Hot Pads in the bright spring colors of pink, light pink, white, turquoise and lavender. All the yarn was medium worsted weight cotton yarn, all in unmarked labels.

As usual I will be working the crocheting pattern that came in the kit, but there is also a pattern for those of you who prefer to knit. All the patterns are on an easy level and I will only need to supply an E hook and a tapestry needle.

The stitches in the hot pads for the most part are your basic crochet stitches of the chain stitch, single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet and triple. This will give a new crocheter a good workout with using a variety of these basic stitches and for an added challenge there is the front post double crochet.

Will let you know how I enjoyed the kit and am looking forward to seeing my daughter use these when she bakes.

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.
