Can anyone suggest some quick and easy first knitting projects (with pattern links, if possible)? I have practiced casting on, binding off, the garter stitch and the stockinette stitch, and I am eager to try a project.


Some caveats:

-I have size 7, 8, and 10 straight needles
-I have size 7 double pointed needles
-I have not tried increasing, decreasing or knitting in the round yet
-I do not want to work with animal fibers (only plant and synthetic please)
-I have had trouble working with dishcloth cotton (I find acrylic much more beginner friendly)

Treat inc/dec'ing in the round like you do straights, just add a st marker. Smiley

It might be a good time to try a basic hat pattern.

Actually, I haven't tried increasing or decreasing using straight needles yet.

If you know basic knitting and purling, Calorimetry is a lot easier than it looks.
There's also some really basic laceknit scarves on knitty you might want to check out Smiley
