With all you need to start knitting your very own scarf, the Learn to Knit Kit includes a step-by-step, 32-page booklet that contains illustrated instructions for learning basic knitting stiches. Even if you're a beginner, when you're done with this kit, you'll have a warm and cozy wool scarf and the knowledge to make more!
The Learn to Knit Kit also comes with 200 yards of medium-weight yarn for practice, a set of US size 9 single-point knitting needles, a yarn needle, and 250 yards of smooth wool yarn for your scarf project. The simple, striped scarf is as stylish as it is easy to knit!

In my opinion:

I was only given the Learn to Crochet kit but from the looks of it, the Learn to Knit kit is very similar. Also, you receive a ton of yarn, knitting needle and booklet. Wow! Yarn can be expensive so I believe the kit would be worth your money to invest in. I definitely recommend it especially if you are looking for a gift for a friend, neighbor or family member. I'm sure they would appreciate it!

UPDATE!!!

I recently received the Learn to Knit kit and it is amazing!
 I definitely prefer knitting to crochet but that is my own opinion. I am familiar with knitting. It brings me home and I'm comfortable with the creative art. With that being said, the kit is perfect for those wanting to learn how to knit. It came with four balls of yarn, small knitting needles and a 32-page booklet.

The only advice I would give is that the kit have several options including different colored yarn. It could also include a short DVD for those visually impaired. Overall, I was impressed with the kit and the price was affordable. Plus, you get to learn to knit a scarf and the pattern is basic so anyone can do it. I definitely recommend the Learn to Knit kit to everyone.

You'll understand crocheting instructions, symbols, and diagrams so that you'll have a handy list of abbreviations for all your future crochet projects.
 
In my opinion:
 
I was given the Learn to Crochet kit. Once it came, I was impressed with how much I received. It included four balls of yarn which probably are about $10 each, a hook, tapestry needle and a 32-page instructional book. The book was easy to follow and included step by step pictures. I am a very visual person so I appreciated the photos. I would have liked the book to be spiral bound so it opens easily. Also, it would be cool to get a DVD as well for those visually challenged. But, overall, I was pretty happy about the kit. I thought it would make a great gift for a friend, neighbor or family member. Of course, I'm keeping mine!
 
Now, I don't know how to crochet but I caught on pretty quickly thanks to the step by step instructions within the booklet. I also loved how there was one pattern to try which was a scarf. Well, that doesn't sound too scary. Overall, I definitely recommend the kit. You get way more for your money so it is totally worth it.

  1. Oops, I messed up. I put my pinterest name into the follow me on pinterest entry instead of telling you my favorite board, which is "Crafts for Adults". I hope this doesn't mess up my entry. Thank you for the chance to win such a nice prize.
