Beginner knitting patterns are very simple patterns that are designed for even the most inexperienced beginner to use. Most will have little or no shaping and are small projects that enable novice knitters to learn and practice new skills without becoming totally overwhelmed. Let's face it, although knitting is not especially difficult once you understand what you are doing, the learning process is slow and can be rather frustrating.
Especially if you are trying to learn on your own.
