When you think of taking up knitting as a hobby to create something marvelous or pass the time productively, you might wonder how to start knitting or think of buying things you will need to start knitting. If so, you should not worry anymore. Here we have listed everything for you to make every knitting project a success.
The first thing you need to do is to pick a yarn that looks and feels good. You should not worry about the price but pick something that offers quality and value for money.
If you want to save money, you should start by picking simple needles made of plastic or aluminum. Once you start knitting, you will probably need to buy more needles for every project so, you can start with the basics and move on to bamboo or rosewood needles later on.
You can buy a spiral notebook and write the details of every project you work on. It will help you to recreate the successful projects later on and avoid the silly mistakes that led to project failure.
You can use school scissors or crafting scissors to cut excess yarn instantly.
If you want any knitting project like a sweater to be a success, you need sewing needles to bind together different pieces of an item. For sweaters, you need to stitch the arms with a sewing needle. So, pick a needle that you can use comfortably.
If different ends of yarn are too short and can’t be woven in with the help of a sewing needle, you can use a crochet hook. Size options like G or H are good for most yarn weights and easy to use for beginners. Why don’t you start with those?
