Crocheting the Arcade: The Woobles' PAC-MAN Kit Unveiled!

What is The Woobles? The Woobles are high-quality crochet kits for beginners that include everything people need to learn a new hobby and spark some fiero, the magical feeling you get when you learn something new and achieve something you once thought was impossible (e.g., there’s no way I’m turning this pile of yarn into an adorable penguin). Other “beginner” crochet kits on the market require people to have basic crochet experience. They come with printed instructions that are about as easy to follow as those DIY furniture pictograms, yarn that frays, and a headache from figuring out where to start. The Woobles makes the learning process as easy as 1-2-3. And one of the kits is a PAC-MAN kit - a great gift to a creative gamer in your life or a gift for yourself!

Each kit comes with step-by-step video tutorials via a custom-made web app, unlimited e-mail help, and virtual crochet office hours to help you stitch together your cute masterpiece. The kits also come with plastic eyes, stuffing, tapestry needle, stitch marker, and the crochet pattern as a PDF download. The Woobles kits also come pre-started to give people a headfirst dive into the action, so you never have to struggle with yarn that keeps coming undone or a first stitch five sizes larger or smaller than the next one.

Husband-and-wife team Adrian Zhang and Justine Tiu created the Woobles. Justine was

working as a lead UX designer for Google Classroom when she was eventually promoted to

manager, which was an extremely stressful position and led to her seeking new hobbies to take

her mind off work. “I was so stressed, there was stress coming out of my pores,” said Justine. “I

picked up various crafting projects on the weekend, but my heart was always set on becoming a

crochet lady minus the rocking chair. After learning how to crochet over many weekends, I

started to feel more confident, and I realized that I still had it in me to learn something new.

The experience of gaining confidence through crocheting is what inspired us to create The


The Woobles crochet kits come in a variety of fun designs, including Tank the Shark, Emilio the

Turtle, Fred the Dinosaur, Pierre the Penguin, Bjorn the Narwhal, and more. The Woobles also

offers limited edition licensed crochet kits such as PAC-MAN and Miffy. Collectible and

customizable crochet hooks make the kits even more irresistible. The Woobles crochet kits start

at $25.
