First, choosing the right type of knitting yarn is very important. For beginners, it’s recommended to use a medium worsted weight yarn.n°6 (4mm), 7 (4,5mm), 8 (5mm). Light colors tend to be better because it’s easier to see where you’ve stitched. Wool tends to be easier for beginners as well because it’s super stretchy and smooth
Then the right needles: There are different kinds of needles for different reasons. Metal needles, to work quicker with a clicking sound...Plastic needles, for a budget option (less expensive) and also available in extra large sizes.Wooden needles, more expensive but nice for beginner knitters because the stitches will not slide off.
Straight needles, the best for projects that you want to work in rows, (scarves, blankets...)
Before you can start knitting and purling, you need to know how to cast on stitches. Two popular methods are the knitted cast on and the long-tail cast on, but there are other options as well.
The holes on your knitting: A common problem for beginning knitters! Holes can be caused by knitting with an uneven tension or to a larger gauge than the pattern specifies, but they can also be caused by inadvertently missing or adding a stitch in your work. see: Pick up a dropped stitch on garter st
