Material that is used to knit kippah
If you want to knit kippah on your own, then you must have certain material with you. Such as:
• Yarn cotton, wool, linen. Here you need to make sure that you use a thick, bulky or the worsted yarn so that you can see your stitches. If you want to build patterns, then you need to make use of some another color of yarn.
• Moreover, you will also need a circular needle, which is almost sixteen inches long.
