Starter kit with everything you need to learn to crochet

Learn to Crochet Kit

I’m delighted to add something to my range that I’ve been wanting to create for a while: Crochet Starter Kits to allow those who have never crocheted before to learn to crochet.

I am very often asked for advice on learning to crochet for the first time, and so for some time I have wanted to extend my range of crochet kits to include a starter kit, something for those who have never picked up a crochet hook before.

Crochet is a brilliant craft to learn, and there are many, many resources available to help the beginner, but in some ways too much choice can be a bit overwhelming if you are just asking yourself “where do I start?”

I have used my experience to create a starter kit that will take someone who has never crocheted before from the very basics to confidently tackling complete crochet projects, with only the contents of the box supplied.

Crochet Starter Kit Contents

A Little Course in Crochet

The kit includes a copy of ‘A Little Course in Crochet‘ by Dorling Kindersley. This is one of the most popular and well-reviewed beginner crochet books available. This is not a brief introduction to crochet, but a very comprehensive 192 pages of expertise, guiding you from the very first steps to quite advanced techniques and complete projects using clear illustrations and photographs.

Please note that the book is written in UK crochet terminology, although it does include an explanation of US crochet terminology, so this starter set is not recommended for US customers. Please ask me if you have any questions about this – it is a common area of confusion for beginners.

Yarn

The kit contains 100g of pure wool double-knitting (DK) yarn reared, sheared and spun in the UK. This is perfect for your first steps in crochet when used with the 4mm hook in the kit.

The kit also contains 50g of 100% recycled cotton yarn in a 4ply weight, perfect for practicing lighter crochet stitches.

By including different weights and types of yarn, the beginner can get a real feel for the effects of crocheting different stitches with different fibres. There is even enough yarn to complete some of the projects in the book with the hooks provided.

Hooks and Yarn Needle

The crochet hooks included are made of sustainable bamboo, and I have supplied three of the most commonly-used sizes for the beginner to tackle most projects: 3mm, 3.5mm and 4mm. Plus the kit includes a metal yarn needle, vital for joining and finishing your crochet items.

Notepad

The kit also includes one of my popular 100% recycled crocheter’s notepad. The notepad can be personalised with your own text on the front. It is the perfect size for keeping with your crochet projects for making notes as your crochet, and it also includes handy rulers on the inside cover.

Voucher

Finally a gift voucher for 10% off any of my crochet patterns is included, for continuing your crochet journey. It is redeemable on Etsy or Ravelry.
