Best Crochet kits 2022
Best crochet kits for beginners
We've chosen quite a range of crochet sets that we think are good for those who are relatively new to crochet and would make a great first project - but even the term 'beginner' can encompass quite a wide array of skills - many will come with stitch guides or instructions, but how detailed or comprehensive these are will vary. It's worth considering what you want from your crochet kit - do you just want a nice simple project to make, or do you want to learn a range of stitches and techniques? It's also worth bearing in mind that a lot of crochet kits (including beginners crochet kits) will involve crocheting in the round - an essential step in making circular shapes, but one that beginners can find tricky - if you're struggling at all you can always check out our how to crochet in the round guide.
