It said misc. supplies. The only thing that came with it was the book itself. I did not expect all the stuff, but I expected more than the book. I am severely dissappointed.

stitch cards were missing

Granted, it's a nice set, if you already learned to knit elsewhere.

It comes with enough tools to get you started and some cheap wool to make one project. The packaging is nice and I found the stitch-pattern cards and project booklet to be the best part of this set.

The instructions are written as if meant to give you a quick "review" of basic skills, not as if they were trying to teach you. I had knit before in my childhood but for the most part, I was learning from scratch. The lack of detailed diagrams or pictures coupled with the very brief explanations made it impossible for me to learn to knit from this set. There -are- pictures, showing you the result of what they're trying to teach you, without showing you how to get there.

As if that wasn't bad enough, I found the "first" project (a little bag) they expect you to make to be much too complicated for someone who has never held a pair of knitting needles before. I didn't know where to begin to make the cable design on the front of the bag and the instructions didn't help. At all.

The Project booklet was nice, but I suspect if that's what you're looking for, you can find much better elsewhere, so there's not much point on buying it just for that.

All in all, it's a good little set of reference materials and tools, however, it fails miserably at its main purpose: Teaching how to knit.

I found this other set to be much more useful to me: Knitting: Learn to Knit Six Great Projects. The book is full of diagrams and easy-to-understand explanations that even a child could follow, and I liked the materials included much better. Still kept "The Complete Knitting Set" for its reference cards and Project booklet.

More than just a book on knitting this is a complete kit to learn knitting. It includes a book on techniques, a book of 19 projects, some yarn, two 4mm knitting needles, stitch holder, yarn bobbin, cable needle, and 12 stitch library cards for quick reference. The techniques book includes information on equipment and materials as well as the expected techniques of casting on, knit and purl stitches, twisting, binding off, how to hold the working piece, and several different stitch patterns. It also gets into more complex items such as paired shapings, the double decrease, using four or more needles at the same time, knitting in the round, cable stitches, bobbles, bead knitting, and fastenings. The projects book includes a knitted bag, a colorful toddler's cardigan, man's Guernsey-style sweater, lacy scarf, woman's chunky sweater, baby's jacket, girl's jacket, and even hats, scarves, and socks. For someone wanting to learn how to knit or just getting started "The Complete Knitting Set" is highly recommended.

I received this as a gift from my mother after I told her that someday I wanted to learn to knit. That was just 2 months ago. Truth be told, I had learned to knit and purl (only) when I was 8 or so, but being 20+ years later, nothing was really sticking enough for me to accomplish anything on my own. So going through these books and kit really have helped me to figure out what I'm doing and now I am actually making the toddler cardigan that is in the project book! (I've already finished the little bag that is supposed to be the first project...)

Some of the earlier reviewers expressed their frustrations about the pictures of the techniques. I can understand their frustrations, but honestly, I think that they did a very good job on the description that is right next to the pictures. I think that maybe more visual - learning people might do better with a video. Although I found learning through the descriptions a bit more difficult, it was not impossible and I actually picked it up quicker than expected - I just needed to calm myself down and take it one step at a time.

The reference cards for different types of stitches and different knitting techniques are going to be a GREAT resource to have. If nothing else for now, so that I can keep garter stitch and stockinette stitch straight. ;D There are wonderful explanations about how to do different more advanced knitting as well (stripes, intarsia, fair-isle, lace, types of cabling, finishing embroidery, etc.) which I think will be invaluable in the future.

I don't think that this would be particularly valuable to an experienced knitter, however. Most of the patterns are pretty basic, so anyone who already knows intarsia or fair isle knitting probably wouldn't enjoy this as much as I have so far.

As a beginning knitter, I also loved that I didn't have to go out and buy stitch holders, cabling needles, etc. to start knitting. It was nice to be able to just go through the materials supplied and start to learn!

As a beginning knitter, I found this kit completely frustrating. While the kit has lots of great projects and is nicely packaged, the instructions are nothing less than awful. The written instructions are vague and don't even correspond to the accompanying photos. (The knitter in the photo is usually several steps ahead of you, so it's impossible to tell how your own needles and yarn should be arranged.) Incredibly aggravating.
