Format: Misc. Supplies
I am actually an adult who tried to learn basic knitting from this kit (rationalizing that, since it was for kids, it would be easier) and found it useless. I ended up checking "Knitting for Dummies" and going to [...] for videos on the basic techniques, and found these sources a lot more helpful.

This sparse kit has somewhat useless, small plastic needles and vague instructions on the basics, accompanied by project cards that are laughably advanced for a brand-new knitter. Since this kit is ostensibly for children, it should have scaled way back to clearer instructions and illustrations and simpler projects. Perhaps some extremely bright kids who already had sewing experience might be able to make something out of it, but I would be really surprised.

Format: Misc. Supplies Verified Purchase
I purchased two of these kits for my 12 and 13-year old cousins for Christmas. When I visited them a few weeks later, they asked for help, and said the directions were very confusing. I am an experienced knitter, and was very disappointed at the extremely shoddy quality of the needles and the small amounts of cheap yarn. The directions were confusing and much too complex for a beginning knitter. I landed up buying them needles and yarn, and teaching them myself.

Anyone looking to learn to knit, or give this kit as a gift to children, would be better off going to a local craft store and picking up a how-to book, some needles and yarn. There are many books available geared specifically toward children. This kit is absolutely a waste of money, and is not suitable for any audience.
