Welcome to Knitting Help!

You're getting a little ahead of yourself here. First get the materials and practice knitting till you feel comfortable with it. Then you can learn to purl and practice that.

I suggest you get some size US 8 needles (bamboo are good to learn) and some soft, smooth, light colored yarn in a medium weight like worsted. It has a 4 on the label. Don't get anything fuzzy like novelty yarns. They are hard to learn with.

There are videos here on the video tab and if you have trouble just ask.

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