I have been interested in learning to knit for a while, and now since I am home on a 1yr maternity leave and have just discovered the most adorable baby shorties ever I am going to take the plunge.
So I have some questions on how to get started.
I ordered her patten from the site, she says “I would call this an experienced beginner pattern, as there are a few things not found in the standard beginner pattern, such as a wrap and turn and directional decreases.”
Is this an overly ambitious first project?
Can anybody recommend some good tutorials for learning how to knit in the round?
Also being a beginner I need to buy needles the pattern says you need:
One pair each of US sizes 4 and 6 16"(40cm) circular needles
Can you use a longer cable?
I was thinking to purchase this starter set because it has all the sizes I would need but the smallest cable is 60cm and not 40cm.
Any advice is welcome
