Some tips for a beginning knitter include starting with simple concepts and following instructions of a pattern carefully. Other helpful things are making sure the correct yarn and gauge are used and organizing the knitting needles.
A knitter has more chance of success if starting out with simple patterns and gradually working up to more challenging projects. In addition to this, it is important for a knitter to read and understand the pattern. As a knitter grows more experienced, she will be able to make yarn substitutions. Finding the gauge allows the knitter to practice and adjust accordingly for the pattern.
Finally, by having knitting needles organized, a knitter is able to swap needles out quickly to achieve the correct tension or to work the ribbing in a pattern.
