Anchor Freccia Colorful World

a crochet necklace

Over the summer holidays I received a very sweet email from Coats Crafts asking if I would like to try a new promotion they were running called Anchor Freccia Colorful World. The kit they offered to send included a ball of Anchor Freccia cotton, a 1.5 mm crochet hook, a metal chain and instruction leaflet with two designs for a crochet a necklace.

I'm not used to crocheting with fine thread so I thought it would be a great opportunity to practice some delicate crochet...

I wanted to try the floral motif necklace and really enjoyed working each motif with the Freccia cotton - even though it took a while to get used to a small hook.

The instructions were in diagram format, which personally I don't mind, but I know some people prefer to have written instructions. Saying that, I did make a bit of a boo and made one too few motifs so I had to kind of wing it with the ending but when it's on it's barely noticeable. I also chose not to crochet the petals on the flowers, as I kind of loved them as they were.

You can read more about the promotion here but basically with any 50g Freccia crochet ball purchased from a Colorful World display, you will receive a free instruction leaflet, featuring two designs created by the French designer Natalie Spiteri plus a metal chain to crochet your design onto. There are a further two crochet necklace designs that you can download on the Coats Crafts website.

So there we have it, thank you to Coats Craft for such a sweet kit. I enjoyed experimenting with some finer crochet and loved the results but was very happy to have a 4mm hook back in my hand after I'd finished. I'm sure it's because I learnt to crochet with a 4mm but there is something about using that hook that is so comforting - it's my crochet safety blanket!

*Edit 2/10/13* I've had a few emails asking where you can find these kits in the UK. I emailed Coats UK and they suggest the best way to find a stockist near you is to ring or email their consumer department on: 01484 681881 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

Bye for now. Em xx
