Annie’s Hook & Needle Club – Kit 39 – Sedona Shawl Review

2016-04-30-04-02.jpg

In February Annie’s Hook and Needle club sent the kit “The Sedona Shawl” It is a subtle ripple pattern of fine yarn of red, purple and green yarn.

The kit come with enough yarn to complete either a crochet or knitted shawl. I opted for the crochet version, which means I needed a working knowledge of only two stitches, the chain and double crochet. The pattern was mark easy, which also meant that it was a relaxing and fun pattern to work. If you have mastered the double crochet (The Double Crochet) and chain stitch (The Chain Stitch), then you will have no trouble crocheting this shawl.

For a few afternoons on a snowy afternoons in February while I listen to the audible book “The Peace Child” by Don Richardson as my fingers flew. This was an easy pattern that repeated row three until the shawl measured 62 inches. This is one of those patterns you will want to work when you unwind and just let the tension leave your body as you crochet.

The only think I enjoy crocheting more than shawls is a beautiful afghan so this is easily a pattern I can see myself repeating. The pattern was written with an easy to follow style so I am rating this kit a 9, losing only one point for the skeins coming in unmark packaging. I really loved this yarn, and it hurts more then I can write that I will never be able to duplicate this pattern exactly.

Is there a yarn you ever worked with that you are no longer able to obtain? Please share.

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.
