Here are a range of kits for varying skill levels, featuring both pre-stamped and counted options. Remember that the latter will require reading a chart that's not printed on the fabric.

Editor's Notes

November 07, 2018:

Although choosing artistic designs is subjective, selected those that will appeal to a variety of tastes as well as levels, including the Dimensions Needlecrafts Stocking Kit for the more advanced and the Cool Fins for beginners. Also added Elegant Bookmarks as a gifting option and the Caydo Starter Kit for those who don't wish to be bound by a pattern.
