Annie’s Hook & Needle Club – Kit 36 – Precious Baby Papoose Kit Review



If you enjoy crocheting the popcorn and shell stitches then you will enjoy the Precious Baby Papoose Kit. The hat and the papoose is worked in 380 yards of medium worsted weight green unmarked yarn.

This is an easy skill level kit calling for a working knowledge of chain stitches (The Chain Stitch), single crochets (The Single Crochet), double crochets (The Double Crochet) and picot stitches (Picot) worked in rounds.

This project only took two afternoons to complete as the directions were written very clear and were easily followed. I might suggest that while you crochet you might want to use a stitch marker to help remind you where the beginning of each row is. By doing this it might help to prevent mistakes.

The pattern quickly formed by alternating the popcorn (Popcorn Stitch)and shell stitches (Simple Lacy Shell); which made this a pleasure to work. I am already searching through my stash for just the right yarn to crochet another one and to put it up for a future shower gift.

I am rating this kit a 9, losing only one point for the labels being unmarked. I have really derived a lot of pleasure in joining the Annie’s Hook and Needle Club. Originally, when I started I wanted to experience crocheting some patterns that I probably would not have tried. It has helped to get me out of my crocheting rut. The only complaint I have is that most of the kits come in unmarked labels, making it impossible to work twice with a yarn I might really like.

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.

    that turned out cute

  2. Thank you so much for the input, since I have written this post a friend of my had a premature baby girl. This was the perfect gift to give her. It was such a cute pattern, I am glad I had it. I originally wanted to give it to my daughter for her new baby, but my daughter asked me for an baby afghan instead. So all worked out in the end.
