Simple Spring Patterns - new knitters ahoy!

September 05, 2012

 The number of people taking up the needles is noticeably increasing - lots of my personal friends have been inspired of late, which fills me with joy. It means i'm on the hunt for patterns that are beautiful finished objects and feature just one or two techniques that are challenging enough to keep a new knitter interested but not so hard that they throw their work in the corner in frustration.

Here's a bunch of easy going projects that are perfect to transition into warmer weather knitting.

Mira's Cowl

Mira's Cowl - a drapey 4 ply cowl that will be lovely to throw over your head on a summer evening

Easy Peasy Newborn Sock Hat

Easy Peasy Newborn Sock Hat - cuteness!

Terribly Simple by Caitlin French

Terribly Simple by Caitlin Ffrench - seriously, awesomely simple but a great shape and you can use any yarn your heart desires.

Carol Feller's Adrift: besides the fact I LOVE this colour, this is a good foray into a simple garment. In fact, I might just make one. Going by the projects on Ravelry it looks like people have used 4ply yarn with no modifications with success.

Do any of my tried and true knitters have any simple pattern suggestions for our newbies?

Oooh. Great pattern ideas. Thanks! I’ve had a bunch of people ask me to teach them to knit recently. Was envisioning many Hitchhikers on the go :-)
