Kit 38 – Plastic Bag Holder & Tawashi Review


My 38 kit from Annie’s Hook & Needle Club was for a Plastic Bag Holder and Tawashi. The kit will give you experience in working both rows and rounds, and is written for an easy skill level crocheter. In addition to the crochet pattern, there is also a knit pattern if you prefer.

The only stitches you will need to master in order to complete the project include the chain (The Chain Stitch), single crochet (The Single Crochet), slip stitch (Slip Stitch) and double crochet (The Double Crochet) stitches.

The kit also came with 4 skeins (approximately 130 yards each) of medium worsted weight yarn. There is one of each of the fall colors of brown, green, russet and coral and 1/2 yard of 1/4 inch wide elastic. I will need to use my 7 hook and tapestry and sewing needles and matching sewing thread to complete the projects. So you can tell this will be a bright and colorful addition to anyone’s kitchen or pantry.

The bag pattern was easy to follow and was quickly crocheted. Once completed you need to have a sewing needle handle to attach the elastic and then your holder is ready for use.


The Tawashi was a little more difficult. The pattern was clear as far as the crocheting, but once that was worked, I had trouble following the directions for the folding of the pieces. To be honest, I am still not sure I folded it correctly. But in the end it did look like the picture, so I left it.

When all was said and done, I decided to rate this kit a 7. Losing one point for the yarn coming in unmarked labels and the confusing time I had with the second pattern, the Tawashi. I could see myself crocheting another bag holder, but I will more then likely never attempt the Tawashi again.

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.
