This is a great starter set. The Dishie Cotton yarn it comes with is really nice. I am just learning to knit, but have been crocheting for about 7-8 years. I am just about done with my first dishcloth. I think I will use some of the other patterns for dishcloths that this website has to try other stitches with the remaining yarn it came with. f you want to learn to knit, I recommend this kit.

I purchased this kit for Toys for Tots before Christmas last year. They had trouble getting donations appropriate for pre-teens and teens. This seemed like a great gift for the 12 - 18 year old recipient for whom traditional "toy" donations aren't really of interest. Would Knit Picks be willing to match donations some year?

I would recommend this kit for someone who wants to try out knitting without a large initial price tag. Included is indeed everything you need for the project (save scissors) and the instructional materials are quite helpful. I ran into a few problems initially and had to restart my first dishcloth twice, but once I got the hang of it, things went much more quickly. Because of this, I would recommend starting with a trial piece before actually starting your first project. I would work through a beginning knitter tutorial (like the one on YouTube by Knitting Help) to get a feel for the stitches, then start on the project after feeling comfortable with the basic stitches, yarn holds, etc. Additionally, at the end of one dishcloth, I was looking for something a little more challenging next and ended up re-purposing the included yarn for an easy baby blanket. This is a great low-cost, low-effort way to try out knitting to see if you would want to get more serious about it, but don't feel like you have to turn out three garter stitch dishcloths before moving on to other projects.
