Would really appreciate it if someone can put me on the right track. I know sweater borders have to be knitted with smaller sized needles. Will it be alright to knit the border with 3mm needles and the rest of the sweater with 4mm needles?

I think it best to follow sizes given in a pattern, but to just practice, yes those sizes will do.
Have you looked at the many you-tube videos? lots of useful info there.
Good luck.

Greetings and welcome from Florida USA! I'm much more of a crocheter than a knitter but I see others have started to answer your question. As someone else suggested, YouTube videos are very helpful, as are good beginning knitting books and especially a fellow knitter. Best of luck :)

G'day and welcome from Sydney Australia. It would depend on what ply wool or cotton that you are using and what the pattern instructions advise for the needle size.

This is probably the best advice you can get on learning to knit.
