Where can I buy this kit if I don’t win?

Since only one reader can win the kit, you may be wondering where you can purchase this kit if you aren’t the lucky one to win the crochet amigurumi kit giveaway.

That’s easy! You can purchase this succulent amigurumi kit on Amazon.

What does this crochet kit include?

Let’s go into the supplies you’ll get with this crochet amigurumi kit.

The contents of a crochet amigurumi kit: Two instructional booklets, a zip baggie of crochet hooks and other tools, a vacuum sealed bag of poly-fil stuffing, a zip bag of small skeins of yarn. Text on the image reads: Banana Moon Studio.

The Crochet Plants Family crochet kit includes a bag of tools including two crochet hooks of the same size (2.5 mm), a pair of scissors, 4 locking stitch markers, and 8 safety eyes, enough to make each of the succulent amigurumi in this kit. The scissors weren’t amazing, but they worked well enough. Other than that, all of the included tools were excellent.

It also includes poly-fil stuffing and some very cute, miniature skeins of yarn in the colors and amounts needed to make each of the amigurumi. The yarn was quite soft, but not tightly plied and it did split a lot while I was working with it, however, I did not find it frustrating to work with. The stuffing was good.

There are also two booklets. One is a beginning crochet guide with photos and written instructions. A QR code on the back takes you to several beginning crochet videos. These instructions will be a good reminder for a newish crocheter that has already been taught the basics, but I think that a crocheter with no previous experience will need some outside help in addition to these instructions.

The other booklet includes the written instructions for each of the crochet amigurumi. I found these instructions to be clear, and written in a common fashion, though not in standard US formatting. I found them easy to understand and follow, and each round included stitch counts.

Look what I made with this crochet amigurumi kit!

I wanted to see for myself what the supplies and tools were like so that I could give you first hand knowledge. So I made the Small Succulent Potted Plant, the first project in the booklet. Here’s my finished succulent.

I think it’s pretty cute! Feel free to offer name suggestions in the comments.

What should I know before starting this crochet kit?

If you have a local teacher to help you, like a friend, family member, or yarn store employee, then you can start this kit with no prior knowledge.

If you don’t have outside help, I think you’ll enjoy this kit more if you have some basic knowledge before beginning. First, I suggest learning basic crochet stitches. You can learn seven basic crochet stitches in this tutorial post.

Then you can learn how to put those stitches together in a project with my Beginner Bracelet pattern and tutorial. This will also help you learn some basic pattern reading skills. This is an excellent first project for a brand new crocheter.

Lastly, I suggest learning how to work in the round with a magic circle/ring. This technique used to be called an adjustable ring before crochet blogging became huge and renamed it.

Once you are comfortable with those skills, and feel fairly confident about where to insert your hook for stitches, you should be able to enjoy completing this kit.

Who is this crochet amigurumi kit for?

I recommend this kit for confident beginners, still newish to crochet, but feeling pretty confident with basic stitches and skills. Less confident crocheters that have some outside help available, you will also enjoy crocheting these succulent amigurumi.

If you are an experienced crocheter and want to try amigurumi for the first time, this crochet kit will be a great way to get started with this fun style of crochet!

If you are a crocheter that already enjoys amigurumi, you know what you are doing, and this will be a fun kit, with clear instructions.

Experienced crocheters that want to teach someone else, someone that you think will like these succulent amigurumi, this kit would be a fun project for the two of you to work on together while you teach them what you know.
