Beginner's guide

In this, we have collected all the best tips and recommendations for you who want to learn to knit.

1. Step - The first knitting project:

The first knitting project will help you learn the basic methods of knitting. Here we recommend that you start out with a quick and cheap knitting project, as the first knitting project will always be a bit rustic.

The ideal knitting pattern to start off with is our Ronja Scarf.

Find Ronja Scarf here.

Ronja Scarf contains beginner-friendly formulations, has video guides for all steps, and has various options for e.g. withdrawals, so that you can choose exactly the method that you find easiest.

In addition to that, it is an extremely cheap knitting project and you can find a large number of different and cheap yarn alternatives for Ronja Scarf by clicking on the link below.

2. Step - A larger project:

A natural step after Ronja Scarf would be to start knitting something bigger, but without too many difficult new techniques. You need to find a knitting project that contains a thicker yarn and not too many thin trailing threads. A good idea is also to knit with a matching needle size (preferably for the large side).

An ideal project would be to embark on the Dorthea Sweater. The Dorthea sweater is based on beginner-friendly techniques and a large needle size of 6 mm. This makes it quick to knit and you learn various basic techniques in the pattern, for which there are of course also video guides.

3. Step - New techniques:

Once you have gained some experience in knitting and begin to understand the "knitting language", you need to try new exciting techniques. Here we would recommend either trying to knit a cardigan.

Mille Cardigan or Agnes Cardigan would be a perfect cardigan to knit. Here you learn to knit a saddle shoulder, as well as knit a button post.

4. Step - Try pattern knitting:

Now you need to try out some pattern knitting. BUT start with something easy! Pattern knitting can be so confusing if you've never tried it before.

Here we would recommend knitting the Alma Sweater. An incredibly elegant and beautiful sweater with patterned ribbing. The pattern knitting in this recipe is incredibly easy and there are video guides included.
