Okay friend, so this knit kit shiz has piqued your interest but you don’t know where to start?
Well you just happen to be in exactly the right place! The Joy Make Club is all about making the daunting prospect of learning to knit into a fun, satisfying and highly fulfilling journey!
We're in love with delicious thick Chunky Wool.
Learning to knit with chunky wool is just so much easier - you can see your stitches, and if you mess up it's much easier to fix!
Make head turning projects that don't take forever!
All our knit kits are beginner friendly and most of them are total newbie friendly! We’ve used basic stitches and simple construction for all our products - without skimping on style - in the hope that we’re part of the revolution making the joy of crafting accessible to all (not just those with grannies who passed down their mad skills 😜)
Anyway, first things first. If you’re new to this world of knitting - we gotchu!
Every single step has been designed for beginners by an (almost) beginner - me! I fell in love with knitting last year and went deeeep into the rabbit hole - so you don’t have to.I’ve waded through the jargon, and knitted & frogged (okay so there’s some knit slang I kinda fell in love with) my way to being able to make some pretty epic creations - and I know you can too!
Each pattern begins with links to our Basics playlist and Troubleshooting playlist. We reckon it’s best to make yourself a cuppa, grab one of your balls of yarn, a pair of needles and watch through the videos trying out each new skill before embarking on your project.
Cool, now for the fun bit (well it’s all fun but this bit is EXTRA FUN).
Straight out the gate it’s time to have a squiz through all of the kits and see which one tickles your fancy the most. You might wanna start with something from the Total Newbie collection or go straight in for the Beginner goodies. Whichever way you go, the next step is to choose your yarn colour/s (this totes the hardest part) and hit BUY!
A few days later your knit kit will be winging its way to you!
Once you’ve received your parcel - the journey begins! Inside you’ll find everything you need to make your very own hand-knitted, chunky, funky creation -
The pattern book is your step-by-step (or should I stay row-by-row) guide to making your chosen garment.
We’ve simplified the knitting gobble-de-gook as much as possible but still totally recommend reading through all the important info at the beginning of each pattern.
When you’re feeling ready to roll, the pattern will show you the way and will have links to each relevant new skill as you go as well as handy row counting tick boxes for keeping track of where you’re at.
And if you get stuck, or just need a bit of a pep talk - we’re always here to help and be your cheerleader so don’t hesitate to give us a shout on firstname.lastname@example.org
Easy to follow pattern and super cute
Wow!! This is the perfect kit to get you started. It definitely got my passion for knitting started and can’t wait to do more. Thanks so much the joy make club xx
This chunky merino came up so well in a crochet scarf.
Absolutely in love with my cardi! Took me about 4 days (3-4hrs a day) while on holiday to complete the bulk of it- I still need to add the pockets but couldn’t wait to wear it :-)
So happy with my colour choices. Hardest part for me was the edging and getting used to the circular needles. Marnie’s videos were super helpful and I can’t wait to start my next project x
I’ve tried a few knit kits and this was the most ambitious but I found it easy enough to knit in 2 weeks while recovering from surgery
The instructions are easy and clear to follow and Marnz is always super helpful
Love the blue colour, now just to wait for cooler weather
This project gave me more than just a beanie. It was so nice to have a relaxing project to work on and have something useful at the end. I highly recommend!! My advice would be to read the book and go through all the ‘basics’ videos on YouTube before diving in so you know where to find all the videos you’ll need. The beanie is a cool style and the merino wool is super soft and easy to work with. The videos are really easy to follow. I can’t wait to get started on my next project!
I've started my second sweater using joy make club and I cannot get over how good it is to use. It's a smooth, consistent wool and works up so, so easily. I can't wait to wear my finished product!
Ideal project for that weird period of time between Chrissy and New Years where you don’t know what day it is, and the kids are all home and driving you nuts, but you’re still trying to be present and in the moment and also not on a device, so you need something to keep you wooooosaaaahhh 👌🏻 10/10 recommend! Only qualm would be that id love it to be a bigger piece - was kinda sad when I finished! Haha! such a fun, textural pattern that will look awesome on our lounge room wall 🤩
Easy beanie to make in a weekend
The merino is so lush
This was a really great kit as a beginner knitter. I had started with a beanie and then progressed to this piece which really worked for me in terms of reinforcing those basic skills and then trying something new too. Looks so beautiful and took me about 4 hours. I have since gifted to a friend and I also ended up adding 2 extra tassels. I am hooked!
The colour is outstanding the the wool is superb! Chunky, funky & hardy wool perfect for my guilty pleasure…. slipper socks. Prepping ahead of the Christmas season and getting presents underway!
Loved my own cocoon jumper so much, did a mini version so we can be matching!
2nd beginner project complete. Loved the first one so much I ordered more wool to make a second that was thinner, shorter and no tassels
Colours are amazing
3rd beginner project completed. I love it.
This was so great to make.
Took me a little bit to get started but once I did it was so good.
Was a great smaller project to do and turned out great
