I was a pretty good kit for my daughter to learn with. The instructions came with both left handed and right handed directions. Two hooks so that she could mirror me showing her how to do it or practice with a friend. The only thing I didn't really like is it focused on getting to granny squares right away. I always make people practice chains, then single crochet, then double crochet. Long before I would have them working on a protect that is mixing chains and douboe crochets, with colour changes off the start. She lost confidence trying to do the squares until I pulled her away from those to practice rows first. The yarn on bobbins was frustrating for her too when it suddenly flipped off her lap and across the room. Save on packaging and make them cakes or balls with a center pull.
