What is a crochet animal kit?

Typically, beginner crochet kits are boxes containing all the basic supplies for a small project. Most crochet animal kits will include yarn (suitable for beginners), crochet hooks, tapestry needles, stuffing fiber, safety eyes. And, for the most part, even a pre-started project. 

Also, most kit’s suppliers are experienced crocheters and they offer video tutorials as well. Video tutorials are great to make sense of Amigurumi when you’re first starting. So, make sure you check the kit description if you are a visual learner and like videos.

Why should you get a crochet kit?

First, because it is convenient, you get everything you need to get started in a box delivered to your home. And second, shopping for crochet supplies, one at a time, can get expensive and overwhelming. 

That said, purchasing a crochet animal kit will be a lot more affordable and you get exactly what you need to get started.

Besides, these kits make amazing gifts for kids or anyone who wants to start making crochet animals. I would recommend you read through other buyers’ reviews and see what they think.

Supplies to make your own crochet animal kit

So, you must be wondering, when is it better to make my own kit myself? Well, usually when you have decided that making crochet stuffed animals will be a part of your crafty journey. 

Here is a list of basic supplies and materials you will need:

  • Non-splitting yarn, I recommend worsted weight/Aran (#4) 100% mercerized cotton.
  • Amigurumi crochet patterns, free or paid 
  • Crochet hooks sizes ranging from 3.5 mm to 4.00 mm
  • Safety eyes and noses
  • Stitch markers
  • Stuffing fiber, like Poly-Fill
  • Stuffing tools
