You know all the basics now so you can pretty much do what you want! How about a hat?

Something with increases and decreases? You can try a hat, they're not too large.

Stockinette Stitch edges...
Hi!

They curl. Just thought you'd want to know that if you're planning a scarf. It's usually a good idea to do something else, like garter stitch that's all knit stitches, to make a border around your stockinette stitch.

Either way, happy knitting!

Ruthie

A scarf with garter stitch borders & stockinette interior is a good starter project.
If you want something slightly more advanced, then a hat on circulars or double point needles. That would give you practice with ribbing & working in the round.

Oh come on. Go crazy. Do some lace pattern that'll make you cry and wish you never touched a needle. You'll cry yourself to sleep at night after ripping out 40 rows of finished work for that one stupid mistake that threw the whole thing off.

My earliest knitting projects were scarves and 2-needle mittens. Baby blankets and dishclothes are also pretty manageable.

A ribbed or basket weave scarf would introduce both stitches in the same row and that would be good, too.
