Choosing yarns is one of the most important parts. In addition to quality, you should think about whether you want a sweater for colder or milder days. That way you know if you need thicker or thinner yarns. From there you will know the number of the indicated knitting needle. In most yarns, on the packaging you will find the manufacturer’s recommendation. Even so, yarn’s yield varies according to each stitch. This is super normal, don’t worry.
Over time you will loosen your stitch more, but it is only practice that gives you these results. Ready to knit? The sweater is knit in one piece, from top down.
