A roundup of 20 easy knitting projects beyond blankets and scarves — knitting for beginners ideas
knitting for beginners
So I actually really do like to knit. Only, I’m terrible at it. I can only do squares (and rectangles, I can do those). I’ve been knitting rainbow scarves (only, that whole switching colors thing has left some evidence) and I even knitted a hat. But I don’t know how to knit circles and googling and youtubing didn’t help me much with the whole knitting for beginners thing, so my too-big hat is a rectangle I just sewed up the back. This is my effort to move beyond the comfort zone and actually knit something useful. Here is a collection of easy-to-knit projects I want to try. I’m in the knitting for beginners category, so these easy knitting projects are those I’ll try first.
