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

2016-01-26-07-26.jpg

Annie’s Hook & Needle Club ended the year 2015 with the Chucky Cowl & Mittens kit. This was the first kit that I received that had two different skill levels, the cowl was beginner and the mittens was easy. However, both was worked in three afternoons.

The Chucky Cowl & Mittens set come with two skeins that equaled 274 yards of variegated black and white super bulky yarn. To complete the crocheting patterns (there is knitting if you prefer) you will need three hooks sizes, a K, L and N. In addition to an tapestry needle and stitch marker.

This is one of those projects that has easy to follow instructions and you could easily do while visiting with a friends or accompanying someone on an automobile ride. Especially while working the cowl. As one you have started you really do not need the instructions in front of you while you work.

This is a great kit for a new crocheter who would like practice learning to read patterns. It will give you some experience with working in rounds as well as rows. You should, however, have mastered the slip stitch (Slip Stitch), chain stitch (The Chain Stitch), double crochet(The Double Crochet). I would strongly suggest the use of a stitch marker when working in rounds so you will not lose the starting point of the item. Also, take the time to gauge you work, to ensure a proper fit.

This was a relaxing kit to crochet and would have given it a 10 if it had not been for the fact that the yarn came in unmarked labels. If I really enjoy a yarn, I would like the option of using it again in the future.

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.
