Don’t feel bad about pinching those pennies. Try these 25 kits from Lion Brand to get your crochet fix this spring without breaking the bank!
Lately, I’ve been bitten by the travel bug and plan to spend my spring and summer on as many airplanes as possible. That means my travel budget is going up while my yarn budget is going down. But I found a bunch of great crochet kits on the Lion Brand website for $40 or less to keep me preoccupied while I’m jet setting!

There’s something so appealing about a crochet kit when you’re low on time and cash. Lion Brand works with independent designers to curate gorgeous patterns and turns those patterns into kits using their yarns. Lion Brand Kits include all the yarn for the project plus a printed copy of the pattern. All you need is a hook and you’re set to go!
There are hundreds of gorgeous crochet kits on the Lion Brand website. I filtered by price to keep these projects budget friendly. Then I picked out (only!) 25 of my favorites that are perfect to make as the weather warms up. And here they are! Click the links below the photos to find the kits yourself.
1// Daydream Shawl from TL Yarn Crafts. I’m so excited to announce that the Daydream Shawl is now a kit from Lion Brand! You can choose 1 of three neutral colors to complete this fun and addictive Tunisian crochet project. Or start your project with the free pattern here!
2// Aurora Shrug from Designs by Phanessa. I’m a sucker for a good cocoon cardigan. Constructed from a simple rectangle and lacy stitching, this one will be a spring go-to piece.

I really want to make you daydreamer shawl! It just speaks to me, as most of your designs do. Having a problem with trying to find the right size hook with the 40in flexible cord. The closest I can find is a 32in L/8mm or a 40in M/9mm.
Which do you suggest I use? Those interchangeable sets are not in my budget
Toni L. says
Hi! The 32″ cord on the 8mm should work just fine 🙂
