Patterns for beginners
any ideas for a project for a beginner knitter?

What do you want to make? Are you wanting to jump in the deep end and try something like a sweater, maybe something a little easier like a hat, or something small and useful to practice on and still have a usable item at the end? You can search for easy projects within any category.

The dishcloth pattern N0obKnitter linked to is a good one. It can make a dish/wash cloth or go bigger and make a triangle shawl or a square blanket. It's a good basic pattern to get acquainted with. I'm at that time suck right now looking for a pattern for a hat. They have tons of wash cloth patterns that can be made larger for whatever square or rectangular thing you want. There are scarves too, generally popular. Have a look around and see what catches your fancy, you can ask anything about it or for help here of course!

Bottle and cup copies are good, too. I use my hand knit dishcloths a lot.

I think the dishcloths are a great idea. A scarf can be easy too as you can do pretty much any stitch or combo and use any yarn to make a scarf.

Dang. :doh: Yes cozies! :lol:
Here's a few easy ones-

I want to make this one for me!

I want to do the owl cozy too! I did a dish cloth pattern with the cabled owl and was surprised at how easy it was.

I thought the clarification of cozies mattered because of the OP's request for beginner patterns. I think a lot of us simply read what you meant. If/when I get to post from something other than my laptop, I wonder what my autoincorrects will be. :mrgreen:
