You will need some basic items to get started, a set of knitting needles and a skein of yarn. I would not go and buy the expensive kind of yarn to learn with, go get an inexpensive skein like Red Heart Super Saver. I would use a larger needle like size 9.
Below you will find some links I found on YouTube of different teachers. I think if you watch them, you will find one that suits you.
I would love to know if you took the challenge and started down the path of a knitting diva like me!! Email me or leave a comment and let me know!!
