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!
I received this Knit-Wise as a gift and it's been so fun. I got the beginner box and I loved the yarn that came with it. It also came with a cute pin!
I had the same problem other reviews had with the tutorials but I emailed and got a response right away. The website was up but there was a problem. They gave me a different link that worked! It was only down for a couple days, not something I would be angry or upset about- plus there's always google! :)
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!
Knit-Wise has introduced me to so many new techniques that I probaby wouldn't have tried before. Also, now they are sending patterns by a different designer each month so that is interesting
My daughter and son-in-law bought me a gift subscription to Knit-Wise for Christmas. The projects are on the simpler side but it's fun having a quick project to knit up in an evening or two. I never would have thought to make some of these and now I can reuse the patterns and make them again with my own yarn. A perfect gift.
My daughter gave me this as a Christmas gift. I enjoyed making the mittens using a different techniques. I loved making the cabled headband. I look forward to learning how to read charts and change colors in the next project.
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!
I received a Knit-Wise subscription as a gift about a year ago - and I had never knitted before. I hadn't even had an interest in knitting, but I just thought the packaging was so cute that I found myself excited to open it and look inside. Everything I needed was in there and I loved the colors of the yarn. More importantly than how cool the contents were was that I could follow the instructions. I watched the on line tutorials which were great because they were quick and got the idea across to me more easily than learning to knit by a book could have. I have fallen in love with knitting, and have continued the subscription myself. It has also become my go-to gift for friends, who have all seemed really pleased with it.
Lastly, it came with a little tote bag that I love and so I carry my knitting stuff in it pretty much everywhere I go.
I 💛 Knit-Wise!
