I really love this site and has helped me out so much in the past, so I’m reaching out again.
I’ve self taught myself the basics of knitting, tried a few small little projects on random balls of wool, but I really want to get my teeth into an actual project. I just want to try making a basic jumper but I don’t really know where to start, and from what I have looked into, everything just seems really daunting and off putting.
I just want something basic with instructions that are clear and easy to understand, as everything I’ve seemed so far is really complex and I just can’t follow it. Also, by having just used random balls of wool to practise on, I’ve really had to worry about gauge, but now I just want to try my hand at making something I could wear (I’ve dont things like scarfs - but I don’t actually wear them).
So I guess I’m wondering; a) how did you first go about actually making something to use and not just to practise with, b) is it possible to get a pattern and the wool together? as I get a bit lost as well with finding the right wool, so having the 2 together would be great !
