Great beginners kit. I learned a lot. The instructions are clear and the video is informative. I'm glad I purchased this -- very happy.

Book is useful. Video too basic and slightly useless (youtube)

HASH(0x9c009fcc) out of 5 stars Basic Tool Kit, Book Oct. 14 2010
By Bookratt - Published on Amazon.com
Not a bad price whether purchased in craft stores or online, this basic kit from needle maker Boye has all the basic stuff a knitter just learning the craft will need:

A pattern book w/intructions
2 pairs of metal knitting needles (size 6 and 8)
1 metal cable stitch needle
1 metal stitch holder
1 plastic stitch guage/mini ruler
1 pair of rubber knitting needle point protectors
2 plastic yarn needles
a set of plastic stitch markers/rings
a plastic knitting tally, aka stitch counter

I paid less for the kit than if purchasing each item separately.

The book has some black and white and some color photos, basic instructions, and approximately 20 patterns for wearable/usable items. I like the fur-edged sweater, particularly---but it is a starter book, and you may want or need more help to master some stitches.

For example, I had no trouble casting on, or knitting and purling, using these instructions, but needed more help for making a cable. I used free tutorials and links to videos I found at several online craft websites (Joannes, Michaels, Knitty, Hobby Lobby, etc), for that. Sometimes seeing IS believing.

I've crocheted and loom knitted (rake knitted) for years, and attempted to learn to knit before, too, but sometimes I read things over and over--and over---and just can not visualize what is meant. I was flummoxed by "toward the front of the work" and "as if for purling" in the same sentence. Then I saw a cable being knit by someone else and it smacked me right in the face. I said, "Of course, that's what they mean!"

The book might not be basic enough for some beginners, and some of the patterns are more challenging and suited to an advanced beginner, rather than a brand-new knitter. For truly visual learners, there are some great books and dvds out there in the Teach Yourself Visually series, which better show you in step-by step pictures, how to learn this craft. But the dvd by itself in that series retails for twice the price of this kit, so I think this is a good value.

I made two cabled pincushions out of my practice pieces, which I stuffed with steel wool to keep the pins sharp, the very first day. I guess an old dog CAN learn new tricks.

HASH(0x9b7ab150) out of 5 stars Good Basic Kit June 13 2009
By Bellasnow - Published on Amazon.com

I used the tools in this kit to learn how to knit. For the most part, I was able to use the instruction book to learn. I did utilize web videos as well, but the illustrations in the book are clear and useful to tell how the yarn should be placed. As far as all the tools that the kit includes, I am still a bit unsure how to use them, though it doesn't seem like you really need them all in the beginning. Overall this kit, the internet, and some yarn can essentially get you started.

HASH(0x9b8a9708) out of 5 stars Okay place to start June 24 2009
By D. Heinz - Published on Amazon.com
This was an okay place to start, but I did need more help. They do a good job of covering stitches, but overlook the most basic of things, like "how to hold the needles."

The knitting needles are fine. The book was confusing and I ended up on youtube to figure everything out anyway.

HASH(0x9bea33c0) out of 5 stars Waste of time.. Jan. 5 2012
By M. Webber - Published on Amazon.com
I've wanted to learn to knit for a long time, so I went to my local hobby store and found this. The tools in the kit are what grants this review it's one and only star. The book itself is completely useless. It has complicated drawings and vague instructions... it would have you wrapping the yarn around so many places and constantly questioning your every move.

After 3 hours of frustration and struggling, I threw the book down and took to my computer. I went to you tube and found a 10 minute video, where in the first 2 minutes taught me everything i needed to know, in much simpler steps.

If you're an advanced knitter, the patterns in this book may be useful to you. If you're a complete beginner and have no idea how to get started, avoid this kit like the plague. You will save yourself hours of frustration and anger by looking up a simple 10 minute "Learn to Knit" video.
