One of my favorite techniques is cabling. If you think of it as just knitting your stitches out of order it’s less intimidating. Use a cable needle at first and when you feel confident try knitting without a cable needle. Pattern is included with yarn purchase. Just add US 10 - 24 inch circular needles.
