I need help!

So I learned the basics of knitting cast on knit and purl and I would like to have some free pattern recommendations I would prefer free since I don’t really know what I’m doing!

Also I only have 5mm knitting needles and a lot of 5mm yarn! So I can’t do anything with other needle sizes

I would also suggest trying out a scarf if you want to try something really simple. Just cast on like 30-35 stitches and do a basic knit stitch for a few rows or try stockinette stitch (where you knit one row, then purl the next). This could easily become a sampler if you want to change colors and do different stitches!

If you want something else that can be simple, do a knit 2, purl 2 (a basic ribbing) hat. That can be done in a rectangle and then sewn up the top and side. If you have circular needles you can try knitting in the round!

I learned crochet first! I think I like crochet a little bit better.

Find different stitch patterns and practice them on dishcloths. The mistakes don’t matter, the dishes won’t care! :wink: Plus knitting a 5 foot long scarf will seem to take forever. :scarf:

Once you learn more and get used to holding the needles and yarn, then you can tackle harder projects. There are tons of free dishcloth patterns with different stitch patterns. :blush:

Good luck! :blush: I’ve been attempting to learn to crochet the last couple of days and all I have to say is that at least in knitting there’s only the knit and purl stitches to learn, the rest is how you manipulate them. There seem to be an endless number of crochet stitches!

For real :joy: I would say I’m relatively advanced now but I still don’t know some of the stitches :joy:
