Easy Knitting Project for Beginners

When I was 9, I taught myself to knit from an old, dusty library book with a pair of chopsticks and some leftover yarn my mom had in her sewing basket. Since then, I’ve traded in the chopsticks for some real knitting needles, but being self-taught limited me to the basic knit, purl, and stockinette stitches. And believe me, there’s only so many scarves one person needs!

All that has recently changed, thanks to Staci at VeryPink. I stumbled across this Dishcloth Tutorial on YouTube and I’m so glad I did! Staci’s tutorials are absolutely amazing! She walks you through each step slowly and shows you exactly what to do. In this video, Staci shows how to knit the project on the bias and how to increase and decrease to make the decorative square. There’s even a free pattern on her website so you can follow along.

Knitting Progress

I have to confess, I’m kind of obsessed with making these dishcloths. Here are my two most recent ones:

If you want to dress them up a little bit, you could tie them with ribbon and give them as a gift. You could even package them with a candle and a fancy bar of soap and give them as a washcloth.

If you’re looking for a quick and easy knitting project, this is it! I can’t wait to try another one of Staci’s tutorials. Do you have any quick beginner projects to recommend? Feel free to share in the comments below. :)
