Beginner knitting patterns
 
:muah: I am really bored and want a new pattern to work on I have looked at most of these patterns but none of them suit me and I want to make something simple that doesn't take to long but doesn't; take me 2 seconds! If anyone had a favorite thing they worked on when they first started you could either tell me what it is or send me a link.


THANKS!!!!:thumbsup:

Try a dish or wash cloth, they're fairly small but not always simple. This site has dozens of patterns using different stitch patterns. Or you could make a bunch of them and sew together to make a scarf or small blanket.

This site has patterns geared for different levels, beginner, intermediate, and advanced. You have to sign up, but there's no fees.

simple traveling scarf...but not too simple
 
Seems like when I come here, I always have a favor to ask...Please accept my thank you's in advance.
I have been looking for a simple,but not boring all knit/or all knit and purl scarf. It seems what I'm finding is super boring,or lots and lots of yo's,and knit behind the whatevers that I can possible do even if I want to...(well maybe then)but not on a trip. What I am looking for is maybe a pattern repeat every other row,with a few k rows inbetween..you all know what I'm talking about..something I can memorize. I've been looing for two day,and I'm tired...whew!;) so if you have something to offer beyond 'feather and fan'...gosh I'd love to hear about it. Your all the best!:inlove: take care....wholycow

Well feather and fan fits your description of a pattern row then plain rows, but it can be tricky even though it's fairly simple.

Try the Clapotis. It's basically stockinette, has increases or decs at the ends of the rows because it's knit on the diagonal, but you get to drop some stitches for a really cool effect, especially in yarn with long color changes. It's kind of a shawl, but you can do less of the repeats in the increase section to make a scarf.

I don't know that it has a name. i got it from Annie's Attic and it was called scarf A (it was a flyer with 6 different scarfs on it.) This has 9 rows to the pattern repeat (but the pattern is realy only 2 rows)
Odd rows (1,3,5,7,9) K1 P1
Even rows (2,4,6,8) K
Because it repeats an odd number of rows the pattern switches sides.
