Doing a project that's above your 'level' isn't necessarily a bad thing though; if you really want the FO you'll learn a lot. My second real project at age 15 was a top down raglan sweater with a cable down the front. I had practiced a little with some leftover yarn from my first project, and just followed the instructions in the pattern which told me what stitches to do when. I have yet to make a dishcloth and only did my first scarf about 7 years ago - 40some years after that first sweater. My first hat happened a year later. So it can be good to stretch yourself a little.
