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
Q: With the $27.50 box subscription, is it just one box every three months, or a box for each of 3 months? Asked by Alexa H., December 2019
It is one box every three months. Each box contains everything needed to complete a fun and useful project. I love the very high grade of yarn shipped over from Italy and the adventure of trying the new set of knitting or crocheting needles sent with each box. I would highly recommend it not only as a gift but as a treat for one’s self. The Knit-Wise boxes themselves have been given a lot of thought. Their bright colors and...
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.
Oh my gosh I love knit-wise! I get the service every month. Even though I am a total beginner, it has changed my life! I’m actually going to get it as a gift for my mom and grandma for this holiday weekend. If the owner of the company read this. Keep doing what you were doing. I look forward to getting the box every month. Thank you!!!
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!
Learning how to knit has been fun. I look forward to my Knit-Wise box arriving every month. I did not realize how important it would become. I have knitted 5 masks (with filters!) for my family members. Now I am starting on friends. Thank you Knit-Wise!
I've tried several boxes, and this is the only one that's truly for beginners. The yarn themselves are just okay, but they are in cakes, which is fantastic. I love that the box includes everything you need to finish a project. The project patterns are fantastically written, and they're easy to finish in a weekend. This is definitely my favorite box.
This is a perfect subscription for a beginning knitter like I am. I’ve enjoyed the simple but fun projects, and I really like access to the online tutorials of different stitches and techniques. I wasn’t crazy about the quality of the first ball of yarn I received, but the second shipment seemed better. I am very much looking forward to continuing my subscription and finding new projects to knit!
What a fabulous way to learn new skills, see other ways to knit (circular) and to experience great yarn. So glad I joined
Got it for my mom last Mother’s Day and getting it for my husbands parents this year. Our family has become knit-crazy. We love it and I would highly recommend to everyone. Video tutorials make it so easy a caveman could do it. 😂
Knit wise is so awesome. I started a complete beginner and now I am making beanies/gloves/scarves in the cold New Jersey winters for my whole family. It has actually saved me money in what I would have spent in winter apparel.
Absolutely not for beginners. I had to look up other videos online because the ones provided don't give clear instructions. Clearer videos AND printed instructions should be provided. Keeping up with the video is difficult (even with pausing). printed instructions would give a clearer view of each stitch and where I should be putting the needle. There are no instructions about how tight stitches should be. As a beginner.. I went through a lot of my project yarn just practicing (and screwing up). Practice yarn should be provided that is either a thicker material so you can see each stitch or a color that is easy to see.
