The first box in our Beginner Knitting series is the Coaster Set kit. This kit allows you to learn all of the basics of knitting including casting on, knit stitch, and purl stitch. The boxes include the pattern, yarn, needles, and all other tools needed to complete the coasters.
Order by March 20th to get this box!
Q: I just received my first box of the yarn only. While i do like the colors, I need more info! Can you please tell me the weight? I think its a 2/sport but not 100%. Also, how many yards?Asked by Dezaray C., March 2021
Q: Deciding between the beginner or advanced box? I've been knitting for years but only blankets, so I know only the basic stitches and a few more advanced techniques. How advanced is the advanced box?Asked by Rebekah D., May 2020
Q: What's the yarn made of? I'm thinking about subscribing but I have to ask because of a life threatening allergy to a certain material.Asked by Kenty D., August 2020
Looks like they are all mixes. Wool plus acrylic or polyester.
Q: Does the yarn-only box come with project instructions?Asked by Christina S., March 2021
The Just the Yarn subscription comes with only the yarn, no project instructions.
I received this as a gift from my daughter and son-in-law for Christmas. I have crocheted before in the past but never tried knitting before. So far I have made coasters, a little pouch, and now I am working on a hat. It was a bit tricky getting started but they provided enough yarn that I was able to end up with a set of nice coasters.
I was attracted to this subscription box because I am a new knitter with short attention span. The reviews across the internet seemed to give this subscription at least a 4.2/5, so I thought I would give it a try. I'll be honest, some of the negative reviews on cratejoy made me nervous, particularly when I read about missed crates and poor customer service. The reality has been quite different.
1. Customer service: I did try to contact them through Cratejoy once and never received a response, which makes me think there is an issue in the connection between cratejoy and Knitwise because when I have contacted Knitwise directly through their own website I have had no problem with customer service. They have been prompt and helpful. There was a shipping issue (package got hung up at the post office) and I received a follow-up email checking that I received the package.
2. Quality: I am pleased with the quality of the yarn and the project they sent. It is for coasters, which honestly is about the attention span I have. Plus, I can make these for relatives and look like I am super crafty.
3. Support: They have many videos on the Knitwise website to help you out with techniques if you are struggling, which I really enjoy.
Overall, though only my first box, I am quite satisfied and at this point would recommend Knitwise to other knitters!
My knit was perfect for a quick reminder in how to crochet. I'm very excited to finish my project and send a picture!!
I placed my first order on the 13th with the understanding that shipments would be processed starting the 20th. By the 31st, my mother had not received her shipment, and I was charged for my 2nd shipment. I messaged the seller - no response. My mother received the shipment a few days later, and it was missing key components - like the crochet hook. I messaged the seller again about the missing items and gave them 3 days to respond - still no response. I am cancelling immediately. I wanted to gift something creative but now I doubt I will ever use a subscription gift service again.
I liked this project. The yarn was a fun, fuzzy texture that created a really pretty product. The project itself was simple but still fun to do. The hook is neat being wooden and all but I did have a few issues with it. It’s a bit rough on the end and shaft where the yarn has to rub. This yarn especially was particularly catchy on these rough patches. I sanded it a little on the problem areas and it’s much easier to work with and I like the feel of the wooden hook.
My kids got me a three-month subscription for Mother’s Day. I think it’s a really great idea, nice to get a gift once a month. I think the projects are cute but kind of impractical. A knit eye pad for sleeping or a knit bag to hold my water bottle are hard to get enthusiastic about. However I do think it’s a cute gift.
While the yarn on the site is very lovely, the yarn I received was not. The yarns pictured and that customers believe they will receive appear to be nice ones that would make pretty garments, hats and the like. The actual yarn I received is a scratchy ribbon type yarn that I would never want against my skin. I purchased a 3 month subscription and hope next month will be nicer yarn. Such a disappointment for my first ever box from this company.
Love the yarn! It's soft and always comes in great colors!
I really enjoy my Knit-Wise boxes! The projects are fun and a good variety. There are a few other subscription boxes with higher quality products, but I am a newer crocheter and I really love the idea that this subscription allows you to specify a skill level!
These first two kits have helped me so much in understanding the basics of knitting. The second was fantastic in helping me understand in the round knitting. I am so glad I found this monthly subscription!
