If you're just starting out in the world of knitting, it's important to find patterns that are suited for beginners. This way, you can learn the basics while creating a finished project that you can be proud of.
One great option for novice knitters is to try a simple scarf pattern. There are many different scarf patterns out there, so you can find one that best suits your skill level and knitting style. You can also choose a yarn that is easy to work with, like a wool or acrylic blend. Take a look at my selection of wool yarns that are perfect for beginners.

Another great project for beginners is a hat. Again, there are many different hat patterns to choose from, and most of them are relatively simple to knit. Plus, hats are a great way to use up leftover yarn from other projects.
