The answers to questions lie in your own hands but you are unable recognize them.

Knitting help for some common problems like dropping knit stitch. Picking the right needle, yarn and patterns are often faced by amateur knitters. For the problem like dropped stitch, first you have to realize your mistake. Once you identify your problem sit down, relax, you will observe that the loop has two legs, right and left.

The right leg should always be in the front of the needle. Then put the stitches n the needle as they were before. Always keep the same order of the stitches, as any mistake can lead to twisting of the stitches. Once you have got your stitches back in place you can carry on knitting.

Knitting help regarding selecting the correct needles, yarns and patterns, will help you creating great patterns without any hassle. You should always keep in mind the type of project you are planning to make. To make larger projects like sweaters, Afghans and so on you will need bigger needles that the needles used for making socks and hats. If you bring a kit for knitting it includes all the material needed. You can also take the advice of a shopkeeper if you are buying a needles or yarn for the first time.

The yarns that are available in the market are of a wide range. But if you knitting for the first time then try using light weight yarns as they will not tire your hands, making your first knitting experience comfortable.  The patterns or stitches you use for your projects should not be complex as that creates a lot of problem. If you are keen on using complex stitches, then try using them to create variations, by using simple stitches for the base.
