The First Steps
1, 2, 3, it’s all you need to learn
With the correct yarn and needles, knitting can be successful and satisfying.
This might not be how you feel as an absolute beginner but I am here to help!
There are only two stitches in knitting, knit and purl. It’s all you need.
What you do with these stitches is where the infinite comes into play. So before we do anything else we start with smooth needles and gorgeous yarn, these are like your best friends, they have your back!
1. Cast On
3. Cast Off

The knit stitch and the purl stitch are all you need to start your knitting journey. While the only way to get experienced is to just do it!
