Do you ever buy a yarn without a project in mind? Or love a pattern, but feel at a loss as to what the right yarn for it would be? Project kits are the answer – and Craftsy has a whole lot of them to choose from! Oh…. and did I mention they’re a great deal? So today’s roundup is some of my favorite Craftsy Project Kits!
The Craftsy Project Kits page features all sorts of projects to choose from: crocheting, knitting, sewing, and quilting. So you can sample new hobbies, or stick to the ones you love! Of course, I had to go straight the crochet section.
Isn’t that gorgeous! The Celtic Afghan Kit includes the pattern and the 12 skeins of yarn needed to make it! All you need is a hook and some crochet skillz. This one would be an heirloom for sure! And like many of the kids on Craftsy, it’s on sale! This is a great price on the yarn alone! I have to admit, I’m a sucker for crochet cables. This looks like it wouldn’t be too hard – but would be amazing when finished.
I also love this chic French Market Tote! And with the pattern comes 8 skeins of cushy Schachenmayr Catania Grande yarn! This is what I love about kits – splurging on new yarns to try without having to worry about what I’ll make with them!
I know many of you are bi-stitchal too – as am I! So I have to show you this knitting kit I’ve had my eye on! The Rose Trellis Lace Vest is available in 7 colors and 4 sizes. And it’s Cascade Yarns! I fondled some of Cascade Yarn’s selections while I was at the Knit and Crochet show, and they were too yummy! This looks like such a great piece to wear too, perfect for autumn!
And this is just too fun – who doesn’t love a mystery? They have mystery knit-alongs and crochet-alongs from time to time, and this one features Manos Del Uruguay extrafine merino – yum! The -alongs include not just the pattern and yarn, but instructors to guide you through the pattern and a community to join in! This is a great way to expand your skills – and right now it’s on sale too!
While my sewing machine is sadly neglected lately, the sewing kits make me want to dust it off! There are some gorgeous clothes and super fun bags here. The sewing kits include the pattern and the fabric, which is just awesome. I love the lines of the Couture Cardigan – so flattering and feminine without being fussy!
And check out the Scoop Tote Kit – I love both fabric choices, but the horses are just so fun!
I don’t quilt – but my mom does! And the Aviatrix Medallion Quilt kit caught my eye right away – it’s so bright and beautiful! Quilting has always impressed me.
Which brings me to my next point – kits are great for another reason…. gift giving! With the holidays coming up, we crafters can be hard to shop for. Kits are way more personal than a gift card, and with the pattern included they can make the project again and again! Or take advantage of the savings and create gifts to give non-crafters – great either way!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this peek at Craftsy’s kits! There’s so much going on there it can be hard to miss all the great stuff on offer. Be sure to go check out the Craftsy Project Kits today and see what catches your eye!

i love Craftsy too for the instructional videos! Kits are so nice for the beginner too. Speaking of beginner, it’s hard to determine what I can do and what would get me in over my head. Could you mention for each of your suggestions the skill level required for that kit? Sometimes it’s hard to determine from Craftsy’s website and sometimes they get it wrong saying its beginner when it’s definitely intermediate which you find out once u you get the pattern and I the pattern it says intermediate or advanced! Thank you!
That I don’t know! It’s a good suggestion for Craftsy to include those though – I’ll pass your suggestion on!
I agree with you about the quilt. It’s beautiful. Maybe it could inspire a new afghan pattern…….hint, hint.
I never did thank you for the video tutorial of the chainless starting double crochet in the magic circle. It was very helpful and I really do appreciate all your teaching videos.
😀 Thank you so much Angel! My friend Laurinda Reddig based some of the designs in her book “Reversible Color Crochet” on quilt designs – they’re amazing!
