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.
