You need to actually learn how to knit. With mindfulknits Beginner’s Knitting Kit, we aim to take the intimidation out of learning how to knit. ... more
Let’s break down the elements of the knitting kit so you can be sure that this is the best option for you to start your knitting journey!
The most important factor to consider is what you’re going to make. Okay, maybe it’s not the most important factor, but it definitely is the most exciting one! As a beginner, it’s best to start out with a small ‘instant gratification’ knit. Something quick and easy, but also lovely and practical. Knitting takes patience, and if you choose something too complicated for your first project, you may get bored or frustrated before you can even get into it! So for that reason, our beginner’s knitting kit comes with tutorials and instructions to make simple square wash cloths. We call them the ‘Everything Cloth’ because they can be used for everything! Use it to wash your face, your baby, your bunny, or your dishes! We provide 3 patterns that range from as-basic-as-it-gets to slightly-fancy-but-still-basic. Perfect for beginners.
When it comes to yarn, there are just so many options. Fiber, color, weight. At mindfulknits, we love cotton yarn because it is vegan, machine washable, gentle for all ages, and knits like a charm. In our kit, we provide 4 50-gram balls of 100% cotton yarn. The weight is medium, the most common type of thickness for knitting wonderful wash clots, hats, scarves and more. The yarn comes in specially curated colors. Want to have a meditative experience? Try Zen! Want to feel like you’re chilling on a beach in Bali? Try Tropical Retreat! Want to get lost in the majestic forests of Northern California? Try Flora!
When it comes to needles, again, the options are numerous. The most important thing to consider is whether the needles are the correct size for the weight (thickness) of your yarn. In the mindfulknits Beginner’s Knitting kit, we have Size 8 (5.0mm) needles that pair perfectly with the mindfulknits yarn. They are bamboo, to keep with the theme of natural materials. Finally, they are circular needles, so you will be able to knit all types of projects, from washcloths and scarves to hats and more. And because they’re circular, they wrap up and can fit anywhere.
