Are you on the hunt for knit kits, but you’re new to the craft? It can be really confusing and frustrating! You have to learn about yarn weights, types, and all the different stitches, styles, and tricks - it can be overwhelming. Let us help you!
Below I have a list of 10 of the BEST knit kits for beginner crafters! Each of these kits includes the directions and yarn needed to finish the projects. The yarns included in these kits are also gorgeous, handmade, and are very easy for beginners to handle!
Hands down, this is my favorite kit that we offer. Not only is it nice and easy for beginners, but the finished product is awesome! I use mine for farmers markets, but also as my yarn stash bag! You can get this kit in a knit or crochet version of the pattern, so it’s an ideal kit for any crafter.
Not many people have worked with banana fiber. It’s a very funky, silky soft fiber that gets even softer the more you work it. This beanie kit can be done in a short time and you have a ton of color options to choose from!
Ribbon yarn, much like banana fiber yarn, is uncommon. You can’t find it in your local plastic-yarn store. This yarn is handmade out of torn and spun reclaimed sari fabric by our artisans. This pattern creates a colorful conversation starter or just a gorgeous piece of art to display and hold your snacks, fruit, or loose bobbles.
Our twist sport weight yarn has incredible colors and this kit is perfect for showing them off! With just one skein of this swirly twirly yarn, you can create a beautiful pair of fingerless mitts that will keep your wrists warm all winter long.
Everybody loves an infinity scarf! When I ask people what their first yarn project was, a good 50% of them respond with an infinity scarf. These scarves are gorgeous, easy to make, and easy to wear. This banana fiber kit creates the perfect scarf to keep you warm and cozy!
Do you want to wear and display your work, even when it’s summer time? This headband kit is the perfect option! Made out of our handmade worsted weight silk yarn, this simple one-skein project can be finished in no time at all! Also, we have a crochet pattern for this kit as well, so if you find yourself switching fiber art teams, you can still do this project!
This Sari Silk Clutch pattern is a quick and easy knit project that will give you the perfect purse for any adventure you go on! Made with our recycled Sari Silk Ribbon, this clutch can be made in a variety of colors, and is a great eco-friendly fashion accessory.
Amigurumis are HOT right now. I feel like everytime I go online to look for some inspiration I see some super cute amigurumis that I just have to make. These amigurumi kits come with everything you need to knit (or crochet!) your own little fuzzy friend!
Make a beanie, quick and easy, with our Romy Beanie Kit. Colorful and vibrant, this will brighten up any gloomy winter day. I would suggest the Tibet Jewels option! This ribbon yarn is super fuzzy and it will make your beanie have gorgeous colors and texture!
What’s better than herbal dyed yarn? Nothing - that’s what! This simple one-skein scarf kit will make all your knitting buddies jealous. The kit includes Darn Good Yarn's gorgeous natural herbal dyed silk yarn that is handmade by our talented artisans.
