Mixed Reviews for Woobles Crochet Kits

30 reviews between Jul 19, 2023 and Aug 07, 2023.

These crochet kits from Woobles are a mixed bag, with some customers finding them easy to follow and great for beginners, while others struggle with the instructions and quality of materials. The video instructions are praised by many, but some feel they lack the hand-holding necessary for true beginners. The kits come with all the necessary materials and the yarn quality is generally good. However, there are complaints about knots in the yarn and issues with customer support.

  • Easy to follow, 7 hours to complete for beginner

    This was my first introduction to crochet- it was easy to follow and fun to learn! It took about 7 hours total to complete Fred the dino and had all materials needed (except for scissors)

  • A Complete Waste of Time and Money

    This kit is not for beginners as advertised. The instructions are terrible and difficult to follow and the low quality yarn is unraveling in places. Don’t waste your money.

  • It’s Not So Easy

    I liked how all parts were included. The beginning video starts out slowly, and it was interesting and easy to follow, but when it was time to crochet after the 3rd row, and the circle chart with the numbers were introduced, and writing stuff down, and I could not find the proper whole, I got frustrated, put it all back in the bag, and am thinking about returning the darn thing.

  • Great for beginners!!!

    My 12 year old had never crocheted in her life and taught herself using this kit. She got the narwhal and it turned out perfectly! We ended up buying a few more and those are turning out great too!

  • Not for beginners

    I didn’t want to buy this for my 10 yro, but he used his own money. After years of crocheting I knew this would be more complicated than I advertised. I encouraged my son to practice casting, sc,inc, etc. He did a little bit, but was so excited to get this kit. He was convinced that this kit was for beginners after watching Shark Tank.
    What I suspected, not for beginners. Don’t purchase this until the person doing the project knows the stitches and starts with a scarf or a blanket. Had to do the project for him and now he is discouraged from continuing to learn.

    • I tried. But I couldn’t follow her directions

       I tried to do this owl at least 4-5x. I struggled holding the yarn (it kept getting too loose) and starting and stopping the video. I watched this on my phone as well as my tv. She appears to use larger wool yarn (this is like a soft cotton yarn) and starts and stops her instructions way too frequently.

      I also ordered a dinosaur. The directions were different (possibly better) but this owl infuriated me and I absolutely HATE crochet now. And am near tears.

      I had such high hopes. I envisioned a hobby that forced me to put my phone down and give my hands something to do. I wanted something to help me decompress. Instead (and maybe it’s the videos associated with the owl) I am near tears and wondering how so many other people could have been so successful, but I couldn’t.

    • Lol on “beginner “

      I’m not new to crochet but I am new to amigurumi. I found the instructions laughable and not at all suitable for a beginner. For those thinking you don’t have what it takes to learn how to crochet, please watch other YouTube videos with better teachers.

    • Meh

      The video series is great, until the person decides to "hand over the reins" to give you confidence. Excuse me? Did I buy a kit because I am CONFIDENT? No, I bought a kit because my fingers are spaghetti and I can't count. I'm stuck at the same spot that for some ungodly reason is that difficult. Will the Woobles company pay for the emotional damage incurred by this kit???

    • LOOK AT MY NARWHAL

      I have never in my life touched a crochet hook. I’ve sewn before, but knew that this was a whole different ballgame.

      LOOK. AT. MY. NARWHAL. I made that. ME. I HAVE NEVER CROCHETED AT ALL BEFORE AND I MADE THAT NARWHAL. Now lemme just say, I cried over this narwhal. I spent probably a good 10-15 hours total working on my narwhal. I almost gave up on my narwhal, and I threw this narwhal more than once. However I MADE IT! And there were detailed videos to help me along the entire way. Not only did I make this narwhal, but the videos helped me with crochet basic foundations, so since making this narwhal (I only finished two days ago) I have already started making a scarf and I’m more than half way done.

      If you’re a complete rook like me, you’re gonna struggle a little bit. But this was a struggle worth fighting through, and they truly made it as helpful as possible.

    • The BEST way to learn how to crochet!

      I got the Narwhal kit to learn how to crochet. The clear instructions and step by step videos make it easy to learn different types of stitches and patterns. While I could have bought my own tools and yarn and used their YouTube videos to figure it out, the cost of the kit was well worth the new skill I acquired. Having the kit with everything you need was exactly what I needed to stick with it and learn to crochet! I finished my Narwhal in a few sessions.

      The quality of the yarn is awesome and VERY beginner friendly! Also, the crochet piece comes with a pre-started magic loop and a guaranteed way to undo your stitches if you mess up, without losing the pre-started loop! I highly recommend this kit if you want to learn how to crochet.

    • Great for beginners

      If you're anything like me, you try new projects all the time, get bored of them in 10 minutes, and then have all this stuff you bought you'll never touch again. So I thought this little kit would be great, and oh boy, that is an understatement. It comes with everything you need, and the videos are super easy to follow and helpful. They also had left handed versions which was FANTASTIC. The yarn is not like usual yarn. It's nearly impossible to fray, which is great for beginners because I was pretty rough on it. My dinosaur turned out a little lumpy, but I was really pleased with it. It kept my interest and I was able to complete it one day.

    • Really a nice kit!

      I bought a bunch of these kits for my wife and kids. One of my kids already does crochet and knits, so for her it was super easy but still fun. For my other kid and wife, neither of which have done yarn work before, they also found it fun but slightly challenging (mainly my wife and the part where you have to reduce stitch number kept giving her fits). She did figure it out and that brief frustration was replaced by pride in having made something so cute!

      Overall the supplies are overpriced for what you get, but the experience and walk-thru videos more than make up for it! These make great gifts and I'll probably get myself one this fall when I order more as gifts for other people!

    • NOT AS IMPRESSED AS EVERYONE ELSE

      I was very excited to get my Woobles Lion Kit. After reviewing the video's I wasn't as impressed as everyone else. As a beginner, beginner, I need to have my hand held through the entire process and that's not what I got. First, I thought that the video would be specific to the kit I purchased which is not correct. The video's are general instructions on how to do various stitches and attach various body parts. There was several times that I felt I was left hanging and not entirely sure how to proceed. It amazed me that they talk about the Easy Peazy Yarn but don't use it in the video. The fuzzy yarn shown in the video makes it harder to see the stitches and follow the process. I was very frustrated several times and had to go to You Tube to search for a better video to help me figure out what I was supposed to do. It is nice that the kit includes everything that you need to make the Lion but there are several difference kits that have the same thing. For what I paid for this kit I think they could do a better job with the video's. Once I finish the lion I am going to try a different supplier to compare to the Woobles.

    • Yarn is broken at several places

      Good concept but bad quality control. Yarn is cut and retied at several places for both the kits I bought. I wrote to the company about it but never heard back. Wouldn’t buy again.

    • Came cut and re-tied?

      This is my second Woobles pack. It came with the starter piece cut and retied to the skein, creating a knot in the yarn! My first Woobles kit did not have this problem and was one continuous piece of yarn. It’s like someone cut it and returned it to Amazon, and instead of replacing with a proper starter piece/ball of yarn, they just tied the pieces together. I’m hoping they will replace the yarn because this is not workable as a beginner/learning kit. (While I absolutely recommend Woobles, I can’t recommend buying them from Amazon if this can happen…)

      It is a little pricey as a kit BUT the materials are quality. Video instructions are very clear and easy to follow. I was quite impressed as this was our first kit. My daughter really loved it and learned quickly following the instructions.

    • I love this kit!

      I always thought these amigurumi kits looked cute, but I never bought one because of the price tag. I ended up buying the Dino kit during prime day and I wish I hadn’t waited so long to try it! I knew how to single crochet before starting the kit, but I could not get the hang of crocheting in the round. The videos that come with this kit are excellent and I finished the Dino in two days after weeks watching of other YouTube videos and struggling with the magic ring. Now I have an adorable dinosaur and the confidence to jump into other amigurumi projects. These kits are a great jumpstart into the hobby.

    • Not simple or easy

      I’m a pretty experienced “crafter,” and thought one of these kits would be a great way to pick up a new hobby. I started and restarted this kit 10 times before giving it up and selling it to a neighbor. It’s not simple or easy. Obviously I’m an outlier as most seem to love it, but for me the cost and the frustration was just too much.

    • Poor customer service and directions

      I was really excited to try this out since it always gets great reviews and everyone claims it’s for beginners. I had to have my friend who crochets show me multiple things that were missing or not correctly explained in the videos. Would prefer paper instructions being included. Ran into a place where they tied together two pieces of yarn which I know can happen, but in a beginning kit was really awful. Contacted support and they were zero help. Will not be buying again. I did end up finishing it with my friend’s guidance.

    • Definitely recommend for beginners!

      I used to help my mom crochet when I was younger but it's been at least 15 years and I only ever did sumple things like blankets. I bought this to get into amigurumi and I am so happy I started with this! The videos help you understand the crochet language and how to do simple standard stitches in very easy to follow step by step videos. I did still find myself messing up quite a bit once it kinda let's you go with the flow. I definitely messed up on the tail and spikes and my arms are one level off from eachother but I didn't realise it till it was too late. Overall I think he ended up kinda cute (although I wish he had legs), my son loves him and wants me to make him all kinds of stuff now... we went straight to the craft store when I was done to get yarn and stuffing to make more and I am trying to make him a puppy now. I would not be able to follow the instructions I found for it without having done this first. Overall, I am pleased with the purchase and highly recommended for anybody who wants to get into crocheting!
