What is a Beginner Knit Kit?
A beginner knit kit is a collection of knit items together in a box or bag that will have everything you need to complete a knitting project.
Basic knit kits usually contain yarn and a pattern. This type of set is convenient and allows a beginner to start knitting a project immediately.
Sometimes kits will include other basic knit supplies made just for knitting for beginners. These items are typically ones that you’ll need to get started on your journey of how to start to knit.

Most knit kits for beginners (or more advanced) will include all or most of these items:
- Knitting Needle or Needles

These supplies above may or may not be included in some beginner knitting kits. Some may also a tape measure or accessories like safety eyes or toy stuffing depending on what project you chose.

Make a DIY Knitting Kit
A prepared knit kit makes a perfect gift, and they are super easy to put together.
After looking through the list above and learning what goes into a knit set, you could collect items for a kit yourself. You’ll want to shop for a pair of knitting needles or knitting needle set, yarn (learn about the different types of yarn) and a pattern. There are loads of free patterns here on the Internet that are perfect for new knitters.
Take a look at some tools and supplies you’ll want to have to make your beginners knitting kit below.
- Knitting Needles: When shopping for knitting needles, it is best to start with one or two different brands to see which you prefer. There is a good deal of needle sizes, so if you already have a pattern in mind, be sure to purchase the needle it calls for.
- Yarn: Yarn is available in many fibers (wool, cotton) and weights (medium, bulky). Most craft stores and shops online have yarns that are easy to find and are great for beginners, such as yarns from the Lion Brand Yarn Company.
- Knitting Pattern: Most beginners will more than likely start with a smaller project such as a dishcloth, baby blanket or scarf. Once you find the pattern you would like to knit, read through it to find out what other materials or supplies you’ll need.
