I want to learn to knit, now what?

Over a year ago I fell head over heels in love with knitting.  I have an amazing friend who took me by the hand and showed me the ropes!  She actually fueled this yarn and knitting addiction. Now I have a serious yarn problem.  I mean a serious problem and I have no desire to seek professional help.

You may or may not have a knitting buddy in your life, but I am here to help.  So, you are probably asking at his point where do I start? You may be saying Shanel, I really want to experience this freedom you keep talking about.  Well, let me tell you! I have the perfect solution just for you!

You definitely want to start with  a simple basic pattern that is super easy for beginners.  I started with a very simple Rolled Beanie Hat. I know some of you may be thinking, Shanel there is no way I can start with a hat!  YES, you totally can. I even found a super simple pattern with a video tutorial to get you started. The great thing about this pattern is you only have to worry about 1 stitch!  Yup!!! Just plain old stockinette. This makes life so easy.



What Items do you need…

Bulky Yarn

US 10 16″ circular needles

Stitch markers

Tapestry Needle


Now that you have your supplies you will take some time and watch the tutorial to get a clear understanding of the knitting process and read completely through your pattern.

Now you are ready to get started!!!  Pull out your yarn and needles because it is now time to REBEL and join the Needle Rebellion Revolution!!!  I am so excited to see all of your hat creations. Don’t forget to send them to me! And of course,I am always
