I am a new knitter and am looking for a fairly simple pattern. I have looked at a few web pages but I dont have the proper needles for the patterns. I know I could probably get the pattern to work but I want stick to the patterns until I am more proficient.
I have a pair of size 8 US needles and a large skein of varigated worsted weight yarn. Any idea on what I can make or where to find a pattern???
Thanks in advance.
Thanks Ill take a peek there. To be honest I dont know what I want to make. What would be a good next set of needles to get?? Im kind of thinking about a larger set of cables so that I can maybe try a blanket of some kind.
well, 8s are a good needle to have because they're used with worsted weight and worsted weight is fairly common for things like hats and scarves (and any number of other things). I would suggest finding a pattern that you like and getting the needles that it calls for.
Once you are sure that knitting is a good hobby for you, I would suggest getting an interchangable needle set like the denise interchangables or the Knitpicks options.
