Kit Contents: The kit contains the Beginner Basics book, a 210 yard ball of good worsted weight yarn, and a quality set of straight needles sized for the yarn.
After reviewing several beginner books, we settled on the hardcover book Vogue Knitting: Beginner Basics by Trisha Malcolm (Editor). This book is a subset of the timeless reference, Vogue Knitting: The Ultimate Knitting Book with 112 pages of beginner how-to's, lots of great illustrations, and 14 easy starter patterns / projects.
The yarn is a durable 50% Super fine Nylon / 50% Super Fine Acrylic worsted weight blend that knits up at 18 stitches over 4 inches. We have found that the worsted weight yarn and size 8 needles is best for teaching beginners! The yarn included in the kit is intended to be used for practice, and is not enough yarn to make a project.
Also included in the kit is a set of high quality Clover Takumi Velvet Bamboo size 8 straight knitting needles, 9 inches in length (these are good quality needles that will be used for years, not just the cheap throw-away variety)!
