I’ve just started learning how to knit! It’s been great fun so far, and I’d like to show off my new (yet highly limited) skills by making a few simple knit ornaments or something for my family for Christmas.
The catch is, I’m no whiz at this just yet. I know the basics - knit/purl/cast on/bind off - but all I’ve made are a lovely collection of squares and the beginnings of a scarf. I get confused reading pattern instructions, and the idea of doing something like a hat (which I really want to do) scares the heck out of me! :?
If anyone can offer up some advice or easy patterns to get started with, I’d sure appreciate it! By the way - the videos on this site have been a lifesaver! I purchased a book on knitting, but I never got the hang of doing a purl stitch until I actually SAW it. Thanks!
