Annie’s Hook & Needle Club – Kit 37 -Chucky Cowl and Mittens

2016-01-18-03-30.jpg

I cannot believe that at the end of 2015 I am receiving my 37th kit from Annie’s Hook and Needle club. It seems like only yesterday that I opened my mail box and excitedly took out that first kit of the two scarves (Kit 1: Scarves). After talking to Annie’s yesterday, they informed me that it takes approximately five years to complete the club. (Which could change with the addition of new kits). So I am looking froward to a least two years of what has been, so far, a fun adventure on my crocheting travels.

In addition to posting reviews on the kits, I have tried to post tutorials on all the speciality stitches and techniques required to help with the compilations of each kit. I am hoping you all have found this useful.

2015 ended with a kit that screams winter and snow, it was a Chunky Cowl & Mittens. The kit came with 274 yards of super bulky black and white variegated yarn. To complete the crocheting patterns (there is knitting patterns if you prefer) you will need three hooks sizes, a K, L and N. In addition to a tapestry needle and stitch marker.

The kit is written with a beginner in mind, as the only stitches needed to master are the chain, slip and double crochet.

I am looking forward to crocheting what looks like a fun and relaxing project on a few upcoming winter afternoons.

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.
