This beautifully-presented, eco-conscious crochet starter kit contains everything you need to learn to crochet and begin your first projects.
- ‘A Little Course in Crochet‘ book
- 3mm, 3.5mm and 4mm wooden crochet hooks
- 100g pure British wool DK yarn
- 50g recycled cotton 4ply yarn
- blunt-tipped metal yarn needle
- personalisable recycled crochet notepad
- voucher for 10% off Little Conkers crochet patterns
This kit contains two different thicknesses and fibres of yarn – both plastic free – enabling you to practise the techniques and stitches in the book as soon as you open the kit. I have chosen two high quality yarns to give the beginner the best experience of different types of yarn. The yarn included will even allow you to complete some of the projects included in the book, using the hooks supplied.
‘A Little Course in Crochet‘ from Dorling Kindersley 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 using clear illustrations and photographs. You will in fact receive the lovely hardback version of this book, rather than the paperback shown in the pictures.
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. Do ask if you have any questions about this – it is a common area of confusion for beginners.
The crochet hooks included are gorgeous Pony ‘Perfect’ wooden crochet hooks and I have supplied three of the most commonly-used sizes for the beginner to tackle most projects. The kit also includes the all-important yarn needle for your finishing touches.
The recycled notepad can be personalised with your own text on the front. The A6 size is perfect for keeping with your crochet projects for making notes as you crochet, and it also includes handy rulers on the inside cover. The colour in the fifth photo is more representative of my current stock. See here for more details about the crochet notepads.
Finally the enclosed voucher will give the recipient 10% off any Little Conkers crochet pattern on Etsy or Ravelry.
The kit contents and packaging aims to be as eco-friendly as I can possibly make it:
- box – made with recycled materials, reusable and recyclable.
- ball bands, box labels – 100% recycled paper, recyclable.
- information sheet – 100% recycled paper, recyclable.
- tissue – 100% recycled, recyclable.
- business cards, tags, etc – handmade from greeting cards, cereal packets, etc, recyclable.
Customising Your Kit
The notepad will be printed with the text “my crochet notes”, or you can choose to personalise it with your own text or dedication – for example “Nanny’s crochet notes” or “Kelly’s Secret Plans”.
If choosing personalisation, please specify the *exact* text you would like to appear on the front of the notepad. There is space for a maximum of three lines of text with up to approximately 10-16 characters. Please take great care in what you type, as I will use the text exactly as you write it, including your capitalisation, punctuation and spelling.
Personalised items cannot be returned for a refund.
For more customisation options, including different yarns, additional accessories and a wider range of hooks, please see my Build Your Own Crochet Kit.
If you’d like this item sent directly to someone else as a gift, that’s no problem, just choose this option when checking out and I will remove price details from the package. You can also include a gift message at checkout for free.
If you’d like to have the kit gift-wrapped, please tick the option above. I use 100% recycled tissue and pretty paper tape (which varies seasonally), with a 100% recycled cotton tie and an up-cycled cardboard tag to complete your eco-friendly gift.
During November and December I will use Christmas-themed gift-wrapping: if you’d prefer a non-Christmas wrapping, just let me know at checkout.
Please read my Christmas Ordering Information to avoid disappointment.
