Pour aiguilles n°5, ou 5,5 ou 6 / 7
When learning to knit, choose a quite thick yarn, for example, Bunny for knitting with size 5 or 5,5 needles, or Gatsby when using size 6 or 7 size needles. It's a good idea to pick a pale colour which makes it easier to see your stitches and to quickly spot any mistakes.
Short needles (30cm) which are easy to hold, a good quality but inexpensive wool and a first lesson via video!
With the right tools, you will quickly become hooked!
Off you go!
