Beginner Here....
I was wondering what are some good beginner projects? I am working on a dishcloth now, and I know a scarf is good. What are some other beginner projects? Are there any simple hats, baby projects?
Thanks

Dishcloths are great first projects. I did more than 50 of them when I first started. Then went right into knitting socks. LOL!

Baby sweaters are a great beginner project! They teach you about sweater construction, and they're much faster than a "big person" garment. (Plus, you never know when you may need a quick shower gift.)

Oh, and welcome to the forum!

I wonder where I could find an easy pattern for a hat? I want to knit one for my stepmother.
