Can kids do your kits?
It’s the answer we all dread – it depends. Some factors that affect how easily a child can learn how to crochet are: how much they dabble in arts and crafts already, how much hand eye coordination they have, and how well they can learn physical skills from either video or photo + written content. Kids as young as 8 have successfully made toys with The Woobles kits!
Can lefties do your kits?
Yes! Every beginner kit comes with both right- and left-handed step-by-step guides, plus all of our tutorial videos are available for both righties and lefties.

I'm a complete beginner. Which kit is the best one to start with?
The penguin is quite the popular Weeble, but really all of them are good for beginners. If you’d like to learn how to crochet flat things (like scarves and blankets), then we'd recommend any of the pea kits. If you’re quite content learning how to crochet anything in the round (like stuffed toys, hats, and baskets), any of the kits will do! If you're up for an extra challenge by learning how to change colors as well, try the fox.
Do I need a hook to crochet?
Yep! Please remember to select the “Hook” option when you checkout. Also note that the beginner and intermediate kits use different hook sizes.
What is the yarn in your kits made of?
All of the yarn in our kits are made from either 100% cotton or 100% acrylic yarn. This is because cotton and acrylic yarns hold their shape well over time, making them ideal for crocheting structured 3D objects like amigurumi, crochet stuffed toys.
I bought a kit. Where's the pattern and tutorials for it?
There should be a postcard in your kit. On it is a link to the pattern, step-by-step guide, and kit-specific video tutorials. Type that link into your browser* to download the pattern and access the step-by-step guide.
*If you see search results instead of a website, you may have typed the link into a search bar instead of an address bar. Unfortunately you won't be able to find the link from here, because pages are purposely hidden from search results. Make sure you click on the box at the top of your browser, and try adding http://www. in front of the link in your kit. It should look like http://www.thewoobles.com/XXX.
Why don't your kits come with a printed pattern?
1. Most of our kits are for complete beginners, and we've heard from other newly minted crocheters that following online video tutorials is the easiest way to learn crochet. Therefore, we purposely encourage you to go online to watch the quick start and tutorial videos.
