Annie’s Hook & Needle Club – Kit 34 – Beanie Blast


With winter fast approaching, hubby and I were going through and making a list of things we need for the winter. One of the things that hubby needed was a new hat to help protect his head from the cold Midwestern winds. So you could imagine my amazement when I opened this month’s kit from Annie’s Hook & Needle Club. This month I will be crocheting the “Beanie Blast” hat and headband.

This kit comes with a skein each of blue, green and white worsted weight yarn. I have the choice of making the hat for a woman or a man. I have decided to crochet the man’s and present it to my man as a gift of love. There is such an unexplainable satisfaction when you take the time and crochet something for a loved one, and then to see them enjoy it.

I will need a J hook and a tapestry needle to complete the crochet pattern. There is also the option of a pattern for knitting, but I prefer the crocheted ones. The patterns are easy level, only requiring a working knowledge of the chain stitch (The Chain Stitch), single crochet (The Single Crochet) and single crochet decrease (Single Crochet Decrease). So I am looking forward to this relaxing project.

With winter fast approaching; are you prepared to bundle up? How about those items to keep you warm that are unusual and unique we could discuss? Take the time now to check for hats, scarfs and mittens, as the snowy months will be here before you know it.

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.
