Begin with the "Casting On" video to learn the first step in knitting. Cast on about 10 or 20 stitches and then try the "Knit Stitch". Do 10 or 15 rows of the knit stitch. Next proceed to the "Purl Stitch". Purl 10 or 15 rows. Some would say that the purl stitch is more difficult to master compared to the knit stitch. Consider just practicing the knit stitch for now. To finish off your little test swatch, you will need to "Binding Off". With practice and patience, the needles will begin to feel more natural in your hands!

You can continue practicing making little swatches to hone your skills and when you are ready, try our Fluffy Scarf as your first project! For this scarf, you just need to cast on, do the knit stitch and then bind off. You will need size #19 needles and some bulky yarn such as Cascade Magnum or Rowan Big Wool. This scarf is very easy and knits up super fast!
