Hello everyone.

I learnt very basic knitting when i was a little girl. Sadly, it didn't last long. Now i am hoping to learn the skills back.

I am hoping to learn some baby sweater, bibs, shoes, etc.

I think this is really sweet.

But i don't understand the instructions. No idea how to make the sleves, the neck, etc. :oops:

Hope to learn more from all the expert knitters here.

:XX:

Welcome to the Forum. Knitting is like anything else, start at the beginning and learn one step at a time. Once you get the basic skills, then you can take it from there.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome.

What patterns did you start off with basic knitting skills?

Any simple ones to recommend?

In this section there is a demo of a simple project from cast on to bind off.

If you want a really simple project that looks absolutely luxurious...this (http://www.straw.com/cpy/patterns/bignet_stole.html) is great! I made one (sorry everybody...still haven't gotten around to posting the pic on blog...but very soon, I promise!) for a co-worker and she LOVES it!

I am thinking of beginning with a baby bib. :blush:

Wow. It's beautiful! This is the bib i intend to start off with. :)

What material did you use? I do not want mine to roll when it's completed.

Thanks! :thumbsup:

The yarn you use doesnt matter...the stitches do. Stockinette st will always curl unless bordered by some garter st. :thumbsup:
