What’s a fun project with a BIT of challenge for a newby knitter who’s tired of making scarves? Any good ideas out there?
I’d go to www.knittingpatterncentral.com and choose something you like… like a handbag or hat… some dish clothes maybe… thats a good way to learn patterns… really with knitting I think you should jump in with both feet and try whatever you want… someone is always here to answer questions :happydance:
Yeah, hats are what I moved onto next, and it taught me circular knitting. I love hats–quick to knit up. In fact, I’ve never quit making them–my kids have a neverending stream to choose from!
Hats are a good choice… thus speaks the lunatic who, having knit six inches of reasonably consistant scarf, immediately began a sweater (never finished) and a pair of fingerless gloves with flaps to cover the fingertips when needed. In otherwords… pick up a pattern you like and start it. If you get lost… well thats what this website is for!
Socks aren’t nearly as hard as they look.
Baby clothes are great for learning the basics of making a sweater.
Washcloths are near-instant gratification.
I learned a LOT from learning to knit toys
small Cat toys and balls
increases, decreases, shaping, thinking ahead
just a though
