This pattern can used with any yarn and needles as long as you are pairing up the right needles with your yarn. Go to your LYS (local yarn shop) if you do not have the Learn to Knit Kit by LadeeBee to find your needles and yarn.
This is a suggested pattern to accompany the kit, but you can choose to do anything you like! Freeform knitting can be fun and you may discover interesting designs as you alternate between knit and purl. But if you feel like you need to make something functional, a scarf is the perfect project for any beginner.
