Try a granny square afghan. There are many things you can make with granny squares.

Try googling the yarn companies. They have free patterns and they are usually marked--beginner--etc. Here's the link to Bernat's website

thank you, oilpainter

Yes, the yarn companies have great online free patterns. It is hard to know what to suggest since we don't know what you might have a use for. Babies in the family? Crochet a baby afghan or booties. Or crochet an afghan for the couch to read or watch tv on a cold night and stay cozy. Look up some crochet Christmas ornament patterns too.

You are ready to branch out and try following a pattern.

I am a beginner crocheter also. I've done a gazillion dishcloths! LOL This blanket was my first "big" project. I haven't done any crochet over summer and am looking forward to starting in again this fall/winter. I just hope I haven't forgotten anything! LOL
All the patterns at this site are free. You might have to join as a member to get the pattern, but its no big deal.
