Where Do I Begin?
How do I know where to start with my current knitting skills?
Project 1 – I’ve never knit anything before. Dishcloth. At the end of this project, I am ready to knit garter stitch scarves and garter stitch baby blankets.
Project 2 – I finished project 1 and I can cast on, knit and cast off. Bring on the Fifi scarf! I want to learn how to purl, rib, increase and decrease stitches and learn to work from a stitch holder. Fifi Scarf. At the end of this project I can knit almost anything that has simple shaping like shawls and blankets.
Project 3 – Well project 2 was fun but now I need to learn how to make cables so I can impress everyone. I’m also ready to learn how to knit in the round because I hate sewing seams by hand. I am ready to learn how to use circular needles, dpns and that funny looking cable needle. Prep Hat Now I can knit cables! And hats! And cabled hats! And just about anything I want! Bring on more fancy needle work!
Project 4 – Oooooh 2 colors at a time! Snowflake Headband and Mittens By this time, I’ve discovered there are far more things I can knit than I have time.
Project 5 – Lace! How on earth am I going to make something that looks that delicate? By combining yarn overs and decreases… that’s how.
Project 6 – Socks intimidate me. Dpns intimidate me. Now is the time to get over that and learn how to knit toe up socks. You’ll also learn how to make short rows and shape a toe and work on the dreaded non-binding bind off.
Project 7 – Afghan Sampler Knitalong combines all kinds of new stitches which you are more than ready for by now. Each block is a new learning experience.
