Customer Questions (3)


Q: Is the patterns only knit or is there crochet patterns as wellAsked by Catharine L., December 2021

The Spinning Hand answered...December 2021

Hi Catharine,
For now our patterns are knit only. They're print patterns that come with the box.
Every kit comes with additional pattern suggestions, and sometimes those are crochet patterns :)
Someday we hope to offer crochet patterns too, but for now our "multi-crafty" subscribers use the yarn in our boxes for their own happy hooking projects! :)


Q: For the deluxe kit, what brand/style needles are included—metal v. wood? Circular v. straight? Kits look fantastic, excited to order!Asked by Rachel W., May 2021

The Spinning Hand answered...May 2021

Hi Rachel! :)
For the current kit, we send size 6 Knitters Pride circular needles; they're made of birchwood with a black cord.
Our next kit requires 2 sizes of needles - size 11 and size 15 - and we send both sets.
Honestly, because we're such a new subscription series... we can customize to your preferences regarding wood vs. metal! I even have some of the "square" Kollage circular needles, as well as addi's, Crystal Palace, etc.
Someday when we're big :) I'll use one vendor uniformly.
Thank you for your kind words! We'd love to have you as a subscriber.


Q: Is this box simple enough for someone who hasn't tried knitting? Asked by Stefanie M., April 2021

The Spinning Hand answered...April 2021

Hi Stefanie,
Great question!
The Spring 2021 Alim Shawlette is best for an adventurous beginner. It works for someone who knows how to knit and purl.
There are a lot of stitches on the needle at the end - up to 300 - so that will be too tricky for a newbie. :)
I appreciate the question so much, we'll be sure to specify the ability level on future boxes!
All the best

This was a surprise for my wife who’s been an avid knitter for several years. The yarn is excellent, she’s excited to try the pattern, and the other stuff in the box was a wonderful surprise. It’s also a treat to get yarn that is not locally available, as was the case with this first box.
She is a one woman baby blanket factory right now because her close friends and siblings did not take up hobbies during quarantine, so commentary on the included pattern will have to wait.

good product, problem with old addresses

I like Cratejoy products but the shipping went to another granddaughter's address that was evidently in the system from last year. That was disappointing and has definitely affected whether I can use this system for my grandchildren's gifts.

After seeing all the items in unboxings on YouTube, I was a bit disappointed in the box I received. Maybe it was just the color of the yarn. Lots of black and I like brighter colors. I did like the bag though. The soap, not a fan. I will see how I feel about the next box.

I love this crate. More than I expected. I am so excited for the next one. Kari is great. There is a lot of thought put into this crate. I wish I had found it sooner.

I felt like someone had sent me an exquisite gift! I know I paid for this package, but it was so well put together, so thoughtfully curated, that it felt more like a gift than something I bought for myself. The knitting yarn is lovely and beautifully packaged. The small tote bag for knitting the project is really quite pretty and quite unusual. And the little perks--a tea bag and some hand salve, were just over the top! I want one every month, but I can't be that good to myself!

Thank you so much Brenda! YOU are an exquisite gift. :) I loved our video unboxing!!

Loved my first box!
