At the first meeting of our knitting group in late June, we had a knitting instructor. She gave us patterns to share. Each one is adapted to build skills - yarn over, decrease/increase, etc.
If you are a beginner, or work with beginners, and would like something smaller to start with, tired of the same pattern pm me and I’ll share some of these with you. The instructor told us these were her own adaptations.
Bookmarks (dropped yo, seed stitch, lace)
Scarf (dropped yo)
Scarf (wavy skill - increase/decrease for shaping)
Teddy bear sweater
Washcloths (checkerboard skill - k and p in same row)
