Crocheting a scarf may seem daunting, but when it is combined with a beginner's technique like making granny squares, you are left with an easy and fun project.  The Granny Square Scarf Kit includes a full-color instruction booklet, a crochet hook, a yarn needle, and four colors of yarn for you to work with as you start your scarf. With 32 pages of step-by-step instructions, the instruction booklet is easy for beginners and experts alike.


The first 5 pages of the book feature a "Getting Started" section for beginners, or for anyone in need of a refresher on granny square techniques. Within this section are tutorials on a chain ring, slip knot, and adjustable loop. These are accompanied by color photos and in-depth written instructions, so if you have never made a granny square before, you have nothing to worry about. When I tested out this kit, I found the different granny square tutorials easy to follow, especially with the help of the abbreviation guide on pages 31 and 32. Because I had not picked up a hook in some time, I forgot many of the terms used in instructions. With a quick flip to the back of the book I was back on track and making more squares in no time.


As I practiced making granny squares, I found a new favorite pattern: Lilyan's Lace on page 14. I made this gorgeous pattern over and over until I had a complete scarf, which I then gifted to my niece along with this kit. Easy to wrap and certain to be a hit at any celebration, this kit is the perfect present for any budding crocheter. While making something wearable can seem near impossible when you first start out, making something with granny squares is a great way to build your confidence and get  you ready for the next step.
