    i'm so glad i'm the first to respond...trust me...if you know the basics (knit and purl) there are a ton of free patterns on the net (trust me I printed off 132 in my first knitting week). The one I am doing now is a easy knit hat and i'm also doing an easy 'first-project raglan pull-over' i can try and dig up the patterns if you'd like

    i am experimenting with a knitted rectangle that is attached at the short ends (for your arms) as a modified shrug - i can find some web examples if you'd like ...

    After scarves, hats became my next step in advancing from rectangles.

    There are a ton of free patterns online.
    Here's just one simple one: http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/kce-koolHat.html

    You can find some good stuff at these free sites:
    http://www.straw.com/cpy/free_patterns.html
    http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/
    http://www.berroco.com/pl_free_pattern_index.html

    It's a start!
    Take care,
    Ellen
