Dear users, dear authors,
beginners are grateful for easy and doable patterns, because they enable a sense of achievement. That's why I started a new topic just for the easy stuff. Enjoy. :- )
please present your patterns using a nice pic, a link and text for each of them. Info about required materials, techniques, level of difficulty and what's special about the pattern can't be skipped. All the best for you + your patterns.
For the knitting beginner I have this wonderful cowl which you can knit very easily in every length and width you desire.
Use laceyarn, fingering or sockyarn, even with DK you will get a very good looking result.
You should know the basics in knitting such as knit, purl, increase by kfb and decrease by k2tog. The pattern shows how to knit the cowl using one colour and yarn and explains how to knit the cowl using several yarns and colors.
Approx 100-200 gr yarn (max. DK-weight)
2 circular needles with 80 or 100 cm width with at least half a needle size difference (at laceweight yarn I recommend size 3 and 3.5 / US 3 - 4))
Cuddly, quick and very easy to knit - this is cowl ANOUK! All you need to know is: Cast on, bind off, knit and purl! Level: Beginners as well as intermediates. Original materials: Sulka Legato from MIRASOL (knitted with two strands of yarn at the same time), Needles: 4 mm (= US 6; UK 8). You can use any yarn with a yardage approx. 250 m/50 g (fingering, 2-ply; then you have to knit two strands of yarn) or 100-120 m/50 g (sport, DK; then you have to knit with one strand)

Here comes Lokman the Tiger. He can be knitted in the round or, if you prefer, flat. He is easy to make, and of course you have the option to stitch him a different face. When I made my tiger, it seems I was in a strange mood ;-) He looks a bit sad, but maybe that's the reason why I love him so dearly. (I know, usally it's the softies job to comfort you, but in this case, I always want to comfort HIM ;-))
Have fun with your new friend!
