  1. Knitting Needles: When shopping for knitting needles, it is best to start with one or two different brands to see which you prefer. There is a good deal of needle sizes, so if you already have a pattern in mind, be sure to purchase the needle it calls for.
  2. Yarn: Yarn is available in many fibers (wool, cotton) and weights (medium, bulky). Most craft stores and shops online have yarns that are easy to find and are great for beginners, such as yarns from the Lion Brand Yarn Company.
  3. Knitting Pattern: Most beginners will more than likely start with a smaller project such as a dishcloth, baby blanket or scarf. Once you find the pattern you would like to knit, read through it to find out what other materials or supplies you’ll need.
