What to Look for in a Crochet Kit

A beginner crochet kit will include all the tools and materials you’ll need to complete a finished project – from the first stitch to the last.

At a minimum, a crochet starter kit will have:

  • An easy-to-follow pattern with clear instructions. Tutorial videos are a nice bonus!
  • High-quality yarn in sufficient quantity to finish the project
  • A crochet hook in the correct size.

Some kits may include extra items, like scissors, stitch counters, stitch markers, or a project tote bag.

Make Your Own Starter Kit

You can also DIY your own crochet kit, if you don’t mind a little extra shopping. You’ll need three basic things to get started: a crochet hook, some yarn, and a pattern.

Crochet hook: For beginners, I recommend learning with a mid-size aluminum crochet hook. I like an H/8 (5mm) size hook with a smooth metal tip and a comfortable ergonomic handle. This type of hook is easier and more comfortable to hold in your hand than thinner, all-metal versions.

Yarn: For your first project, you’ll want to choose a nice, smooth yarn in a light color. Make sure that your yarn that is the right size to work with your chosen hook. For beginners, I recommend learning with a worsted weight yarn (also called medium-weight or category 4 yarn). I like high-quality acrylic yarn like Lion Brand Basic Stitch or wool yarns like Swish Worsted or. If you’re not sure which yarn you’ll like, try a sampler pack like this one from WeCrochet.

I don’t recommend cotton yarn for your first project, since it’s so inelastic. I also don’t recommend super fuzzy or dark-colored yarns for your first project, since they make it hard to see your stitches.

Pattern: You can find lots of beginner crochet patterns right here on my website, Or check out this roundup of my favorite easy crochet patterns. And of course, you can search for even more patterns.
