Learn to Knit Kits

Updated on December 15, 2014

Give the gift of learning to knit!

For many people, knitting is a seasonal hobby. When it is cold outside, there is something appealing about wrapping up in a blanket and making a warm and cozy hat or scarf. I have had many friends express interest in learning how to knit, but they think that it would be too hard to start. A great way to help someone learn how to knit is to gift them the gift of a Learn to Knit Kit. These kits contain what you need for a first project, yarn, needles, pattern and most importantly, instructions to knit.

My Learn to Knit a Harry Potter Scarf Kit

This Harry Potter Scarf is knit in the round, creating a double layer of fabric that is extra warm. The stripe intervals make it easy to keep track of your progress. (Counting 20 color changes is much easier than counting the total number of rows. It is easy to see that you finished one stripe that day, but harder to notice if you've gone from 24 to 30 inches in length.)

To make this scarf, you should pick up size 7 or size 8 knitting needles, some worsted weight yarn (I like Lion Brand Wool Ease, you will need 2 balls in each color; 4 balls total) and some yarn needles to weave in loose ends.

What makes a good first project?

A simple hat or scarf makes a great first knitting project. The biggest problem new knitters face is the frustration with not making progress, so choose a striped patten. This will make it much easier for the novice knitter to see that they are in fact making progress!
