I have to agree with the other reviewers: the projects are adorable, you get a decent number of different-sized crochet hooks, some yarn...but the the instructions are just terrible. The explanations are confusing and the illustrations are unclear. After struggling with a strand of knotted yarn that was going nowhere, I just picked up a trustier knitting and crochet resource: the Teach Yourself Visually Knitting and Crocheting book, published by Visual, which has very clear illustrations that demystify some of simpler aspects of crochet. I plan to use this kit in the future, as my skills improve, so beginners beware: you will not learn how to crochet with the instructions provided in this kit! Crocheting should be relaxing and satisfying, but you will feel nothing but frustration and annoyance from trying to learn from this kit. Either buy another guide to supplement or take a class before buying this (as mentioned, the projects really are worthwhile- this publication's only saving grace).
The design is wonderful and most of the patterns are pretty great, but the instruction pamphlet (it's hardly a book!) is woefully inadequate for the beginner to crochet.
The packaging is so cute that this would be a good gift... but supplemented with a better, more detailed introduction to crochet. I'd still recommend it, just don't expect that it will be all you need to get crocheting!
Overall a great little kit that comes with everything you need to teach a friend to crochet and to have for traveling.
