Knitting Kits Will Be Your Favorite Fall Hobby (and Get You Ahead of Holiday Gift Shopping!)
As the temperatures dip, many of us will retire to the couch for the rest of the season, binge-watching every show available. But that doesn’t mean you can’t do something while working through your Netflix queue: It’s the perfect time to try your hand at learning a new skill, like knitting. There are so many fun kits available that make it easy to master this seemingly tricky hobby—and that’s no yarn! The best part? You’ll end up with beautifully hand-made scarves, dish towels, and stuffed toys that you’ll be able to give to your friends and family over the holidays. Below are some of our favorite knitting kits to try right now. So relax, grab your needles, and let’s get started!

Mindfulness Knitting Kit
There’s something so soothing about the pretty colors that come in this kit, which is great for teaching basic knitting skills and patterns. And we appreciate that the yarn is made from 100% cotton while the needles are made from bamboo. Reviewers raved about the “luxurious” feel of the cotton while another highly recommended it “especially if you’re a beginner.”
