I generally recommend a worsted weight, smooth yarn and size US 8 or 9 needles. A soft inexpensive yarn is fine to learn on. Acrylic or a blend is fine to learn on. Cotton isn't easy even for advanced knitters although there are some people that like knitting with it.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
