Congratulations!!! If you're here finishing the Learn to Knit Beginner Stitch Series, you should be so proud. In this post, we'll suggest a few projects to propel your stitch knowledge to the next level. From hats and socks to blankets and scarves, you'll have the next few weeks packed with applied knitting. Now, when anyone asks, you can confidently say, "yes, I can knit," and show off your completed projects too.
Before we get into part two of the tenth post in the Learn to Knit Series, I have a super quick message for you. We display advertisements on this page using third-party cookies to show content relevant to you. This helps us provide this free blog post tutorial. Thank you for being here and enjoy the article!
As we did in the previous post of the series, we'll begin with the simplest projects and end with the most difficult ones. Good luck!
1. Garter Stitch Cowl
We learned this stitch in Part 1 of the series. It's super simple but can be used in fashionable projects such as this one. Click on the picture or link below to check out this cozy winter cowl pattern.
2. Moss Stitch Blanket
If you aren't familiar with this stitch or need a quick refresher, head over to Part 9 of the series. This blanket is, per se, a very large moss stitch square. In the article, you'll find the project pattern and a video tutorial. Since you already know how to knit the moss stitch, this project should be a breeze!
Also, I absolutely love the chunky yarn and color used in the pattern. I recommend using the same materials for this reason too.
3. Seed Stitch Scarf
This pattern uses the seed stitch, which we covered in Part 8 of the series. The finished scarf has a soft, bumpy texture that looks just as nice as it feels. This is fairly quick to knit because of the bulky yarn— last-minute gifters, this project is especially for you.
The following two patterns use the knit and purl stitch but in different combinations from what we have covered previously in the series. I have confidence that by now, though, you can handle any stitch that comes your way :)
The design of this placemat is so fresh and positive. The stitch pattern of purl & knit creates such an eyecatching texture and is the perfect addition to an elegantly set dining table. The soft blue color suggested in the pattern is like a clear summer sky on a sunny day. Any other color works too though!
5. Knotted Headband
This cute and trending knotted headband can be made using one of two stitch combinations. They are both lovely patterns to fit a headband. Although it may seem difficult, this project is just one knitted rectangle with a special twist after casting off. Try it out!
6. 2x2 Ribbing & Stockinette Stitch Hat
Despite the professionally knitted, circle-needle appearance, this hat is actually a flat knitted rectangle! Even after completing the hat by sewing up the sides and cinching up the top, the instructions are fairly straightforward and easy to follow. The 2x2 Ribbing mixed with the stockinette stitch makes for a classic yet in-style knitted hat that I love as well.
7. Baby Booties
Do you have a little one or a friend who does? These baby booties are so adorable on a small child and can be whipped up last minute for a gift as well. Boots, slippers, and socks aren't usually knitted flat (what we covered in the series), but this one is, and it's a great beginner alternative to circle knitting that looks just as good.
8. Slipper Socks
Like the baby booties, these slipper socks are simple but comfortable and sophisticated. The yarn called for in the pattern is super thick and warm, which makes these perfect for a chilly day outside or a cozy time at home.
Here's a big round of applause for you and everyone else who finished the Learn to Knit Beginner Stitch Series!! We encourage you to ask questions about the projects you take on from here. We are more than happy to help!
