Top Ten Knitting Projects for Beginners

aFinch
There is so much to learn and take in, which can make knitting overwhelming and complicated, especially as you are just learning. Taking the time to learn the basics and develop a good foundation for technique can be valuable. This doesn't mean you have to stick to swatches or make the same projects over and over. Below is a list of the top ten knitting projects perfect for beginners, but enjoyable for knitters of all levels as well.

The Top Ten

1 Wash Cloths
2 Hot Pads

Similar to wash cloth projects, but you can start to focus more on the aesthetic turnout for your kitchen accessories. You can also start playing with bulkier patterns, since a too-thin hot pad will lead to burnt hands. - aFinch

3 Scarf

Want to try something with a bit more bang? A basic scarf is a nice project early on, requires some commitment, and leaves you with something you can feel proud about making. - aFinch

Simple, rectangle, and cute

4 Eternity Scarf

Similar to a scarf, but start to work on knitting seams by connecting the ends to create a continuous or eternity scarf. - aFinch

5 Head Warmer
6 Hand Warmers
7 Cowl
8 Mug Cozy

Mug cozies are pretty adorable. They just so happen to protect your fingertips from burning while sipping a hot drink. - aFinch

9 Leg Warmers

Join in the round with shorter circular needles and knit up a sweet pair of leg warmers for going to yoga class, the gym, lounging, or tucking inside your favorite boots for extra warmth. - aFinch
