How about a basic hat? Check out the free patterns page on this site and look for a beginner/intermediate one. You'll have to use double pointed needles when you get to the top of the hat, but once you get the circulars down, dpns aren't bad!

Good luck! :D

This was my first circ project. As long as you can knit ( no purling )you can do it. Have fun and Good Luck

I made Meema's Felted Tote from Stitch N Bitch. It wasn't too hard and the felting hid all boo-boos. And speaking of 'boo', the Booga Bag might be a good first circular project.

WIP: GAAA for m&d, purse for grandma (needs assembly), Grannie Smith Cardi (still), 3 quilts, maybe five

In the Wings: felted clogs, socks

Recent FO: dishcloth for swap, booties for cousins babe

KALs: Grannie Smith, Monthly Dishcloths, Mason-Dixon

I'm making my maiden circular knitting voyage, too! I'm working on the Quaker Ribbed Bottom Hat, which is on the Free Patterns - Hats page of this site. You don't even need to use DPNs on this pattern!! (That's why I picked it!)
