Hello. I just joined Crafster as I am a beginner knitter looking to become more advanced with this skill. I am interested in doing a new project that isn't too complicated. So far, I've knitted a scarf, a hat, and I'm in the process of doing a sweater. I can knit and pearl and other basic stitches. I look forward to hearing from you and what ideas you might have for me.

I'm just about finished knitting this. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/boscage-cowl  I did it in a jewel tone type yarn and it's gorgeous and fun to knit and will be great for the fall.

I'm just getting into sock knitting and it's great! You can learn new stitch patterns and techniques on them, they're portable and relatively quick. You should give that a try next too. Or pick up a copy of KnittingToday! magazine and just knit whatever tickles your fancy. I don't look at skill level when I knit. I pick a pattern I want to make and learn the skills as I go.

Jeni,

If you can knit and purl, then the possibilities are endless!  Just pick a pattern and go for it! Smiley  Maybe a matching set of cabled hat/mittens? Or a stranded two-color bag? I've always had the philopshy to jump right into any knitting project, regardless of how difficult it might seem.  As long as I've liked it, I say, why not?

The sky's the limit! I guess the question is what do you want to knit? If you're looking for simple patterns to expand your skills, I would recommend looking at patterns by the following designers:

Kate Davies
Hannah Fettig
Ysolda Teague

They all do very well-written patterns that are deceptively simple, so if you like any of their patterns, you'll definitely learn a lot!

You could also try knitted aim's and toys. Knitting Mochimochi and Amigurumi knits are great books. You can find single patterns online as well.
