Beginner's wool - a sense of achievement from the very first stitch

Especially in the beginning, when learning to knit or crochet, it is important that you quickly have a visible sense of achievement before your eyes. Therefore, for needlework novices as a beginner wool somewhat thicker wool is recommended.

Thicker wool, from about needle size 4, is easier to grip and you get a little faster than with the very thin and fine yarns. The stitch pattern is also easier to recognize for those who are not so experienced. First patterns with beginner's wool are easier to control.

Beginners wool is not special yarns, they only meet the criteria mentioned at the beginning. It is also important that they are smooth and tightly twisted yarns. With plied (i.e. non-twisted) yarns, the threads lie only loosely next to each other, so it happens quickly that you don't "catch" all the threads. Twisted yarns make it much easier for beginners.

With very dark wool, counting stitches is more difficult. That's why we recommend the lighter colors here.
Here is a selection of our beginner's wool, also fast knitting yarns belong to it. The whole thing will be all the more successful if you first choose simple cuts. Scarves are certainly the classic for beginners, but even with our box sweater you just have to knit straight. The instructions are available at Crazypatterns.
From the recommended needle sizes you should always choose the thicker one as a knitting beginner. Experience shows that you are a bit more tense at the beginning and tend to pull the stitches very tight. A thicker needle counteracts this somewhat.
