I would probably look at some other ways of increasing and decreasing and maybe try a simple lace pattern.

or

Try knitting in the round on double pointed needles. It's worth mastering this even if you can do magic loop as there are some circumstances where double pointed needles are the best way to go.

Have you made socks yet? You probably could try a pair of socks with the skills you have.

Let there be beauty and strength, power and compassion, honor and humility, mirth and reverence within you.)0(

I agree with learning to knit in the round on double points!

Married to DH 7 years and have three fantastic kiddos! DS 6, DD 4, and DS 2 ...... lo and behold another is on the way!

Cables. They are actually super easy, certainly with the skills you already have you can do them. And they look fancy!

I agree with knitting in the round. I far prefer cable needles and magic looping to DPNs.

I'd also say learn to do cables. They're not nearly as difficult or intimidating as they appear. And there are dozens of different shapes/styles.

You're ready for whatever you want to make. Look at some patterns and see what inspires you.
